Who We Are
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, and a strong desire to win, the Fishers grew their company thoughtfully. Customers responded.
Today, Gap Inc. is a leading global fashion retailer with five brands – Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta and INTERMIX – almost 3,700 stores and more than 135,000 employees. Customers in over 90 countries can buy our products.
Our rewards philosophy is to deliver rewards that employees value at each stage of their life and career while driving the desired business results expected from the role. The better you and your team perform, the better Gap Inc. performs overall, the greater the rewards.
For more than 45 years, Gap Inc. has stood for opportunity and equality. Doris and Don each contributed an equal amount to open that first Gap store. They also shared an unconditional commitment to make a positive impact on people whose lives we touch.
We are on a journey to be the best place for fashion retail, from value to luxury, in the world. This will be achieved by delivering great product to our customers and continuing to be an inclusive employer that is the best place for women to work and shop.
While many things have changed since 1969, the principles on which we were founded have stayed the same; operating with values and ethics and delivering great product to our customers.
