Doris and Don Fisher opened the first Gap store in 1969. The reason was simple. Don couldn't find a pair of jeans that fit.
They never expected to transform retail. But they did.
Guided by humility, compassion and a strong desire to win, the Fishers grew their company thoughtfully. Customers responded.
Today, Gap Inc. is a leading international specialty retailer with six brands - Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Piperlime, Athleta and INTERMIX - about 3,100 stores and 134,000 employees.
We're growing globally, and just last year, we opened our first stores in China, Australia and Italy. We're expanding online shopping to customers, too. Today, customers in about 90 countries can buy our products.
While many things have changed since 1969, the principles on which we were founded have stayed the same: creativity, delivering results, doing what's right and always thinking of our customers first. Together, we call it "Wear your passion." And it's the perfect match for the kind of people we attract - as both employees and customers.
