I think this move means that even internally they see Gap as a lost cause. Also to kill the marketing nightmare that is "BR/GAP comes from the same place as ON, just different tags."submalst wrote: ↑ I juist dont get why the quality dropped soooo badly for GAP- and their prices are high. Same with BR- especially when they increased their prices of their dress shirts and the quality and fit was bad.
I dont get what GAP inc thinks they will achieve with this-don't forget that they have alot of synergies right now in terms of online (one website to shop all all three) they share warehouses, online orders can be shared between all 3, staff at call centres etc. What exactly will they achieve by splitting them into 2 idk. They could just try harder at BR and GAP to charge alittle little less and do better on quality.

Was already going to suggest they just put it all in 1 store. It isn't working separately.dougrfdun wrote: ↑ I think this move means that even internally they see Gap as a lost cause. Also to kill the marketing nightmare that is "BR/GAP comes from the same place as ON, just different tags."
BR's sales numbers are almost flat, ON is rising and GAP is dropping. They split so that ON, by itself, can get a high valuation (no more dead weight dragging it behind). Which leaves dead weight concentrated in the new company (they're carving out the dead weight into a new company, not ON, which is telling).
As for OP, you'll be fine. I'd be more worried about specific product lines you like at GAP/BR. If you like em get em soon, cuz they won't be there for long.
