Gap Inc. to launch in Austria
Clothes retailer Gap has announced it will be opening stores in Austria and Slovenia though third-party agreements with new and existing partners.
"We are thrilled to be opening in Slovenia and Austria, and can't wait to meet customers when we open our doors for the first time in each capital city,” said Ismail Seyis, vice president of Gap Franchise.
Gap Inc. started operating its franchise-based model eight years ago.
Gottex Brands, which already manages Gap’s franchise stores in Israel and Hungary, will handle Austria.
In Slovenia, the company will operate through its new international partner Magistrat International.
Gap, known for its casual American style, will open its first store in Vienna by October at the Donauzentrum shopping centre.
