About Gap Inc.
Doris and Don Fisher opened the first Gap store in 1969 with a simple idea — to make it easier to find a pair of jeans and a commitment to do more. Over the last 50 years, the company has grown from a single store to a global fashion business with seven brands — Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, Intermix, Hill City, and Janie and Jack. Gap's clothes are available in 90 countries worldwide through over 3,100 company-operated stores, almost 400 franchise stores, and e-commerce sites and is still growing.
