What is GAP?
Gap is an international American clothing and accessories retailer founded by Donald Fisher and Doris F. Fisher in 1969 with a goal to make it easier to find a pair of jeans and a promise to do more. The company headquarter is located in San Francisco, California.
The Gap Inc. has been around for 46 years and has become a global business from a single store and has five brands under its belt namely Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta and Intermix. To date, Gap is available in about 90 countries across the world including the UK and operates through 3,300 company-owned stores, almost 400 franchise stores and online stores.
When Gap first started out, it targeted the younger generation, with its name referring to the generation gap during that time. The company first sold product range from Levi Strauss & Co only, but by 1973, Gap begun to make their own jeans to distinguish themselves from department stores. Today, their offerings range from jeans to tops and tees for the whole family. Gap has also reached out to a wide variety of demographic of customers by tailoring its stores to “appeal to unique markets” through the development of numerous formats and designs.
