A GAP IN THE AUSTRALIAN MARKET
Anyone that’s shopped in the US will be thrilled to hear Gap is set to open its first namesake store in Australia in Chadstone this August.
The American apparel company aims to open between 10 to 15 Gap stores within three to four years, with its first in Melbourne. The addition of the Australia market will give Gap franchise deals in a total of 24 different countries according to Reuters.
With celebs including Sarah Jessica Parker and Madonna having stylishly appeared in Gap campaigns, Australia is in for quite the treat.
Competitors H&M, Zara and Abercrombie & Fitch are also set to hit Oz in early 2011.
NOTE: This will not cease my Hawaiian shopping pilgrimage.
