Gap announced plans for the first stand-alone Gap stores in Brazil as part of the company's continuing global expansion strategy. Gap Inc. signed an agreement with Tudo Bom Comercio Ltda. for the planned opening of the first stores in the fall of 2013. Gap Inc. plans to expand its store base in the country over the next five years, part of its strong platform of growth in the Brazilian retail market. "Brazil is a critical next step in our global expansion strategy and we are excited to introduce our store experience to customers," said Stefan Laban, Managing Director of Strategic Alliances, Gap Inc. "Given that Brazil is the fifth largest country in the world and the largest Latin American economy, we feel that this market provides us with an incredible growth opportunity." Previously, Gap offered its products solely through duty-free channels throughout Brazil. The first Gap stores will open in Sao Paulo, the country's largest city followed by Rio de Janerio. The stores will house Gap, GapKids and babyGap collections.

15:37 EDTGPSGap to close Piperlime brand
Gap announced the decision to close its Piperlime brand, including the online platform and single store in New York, by the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. The company is committed to executing against its long-term strategy of driving profitable top line sales, and going into the new fiscal year, the company will focus on its portfolio of five brands – Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, Athleta and Intermix, as well as digital and global growth. While Gap Inc. does not break out Piperlime’s sales independently, the brand is by far the smallest of the company’s portfolio with yearly revenue below $100M, representing less than 1% of Gap Inc.’s total revenue base of over $16B, the company said. The wind-down costs associated with the decision are not material to the company’s financials, Gap added.
