It was the summer of 1969: Man took his first walk on the moon. Nearly 450,000 people gathered in upstate New York to witness the historic Woodstock concert. And Doris and Don Fisher opened the first Gap store in San Francisco, California with the goal of creating a store experience that was easy for the customer and offered a wide selection of fits and styles.
Since 1969, customers have looked to Gap for updated, casual clothing and accessories that help them express their own personal sense of style. Today, Gap continues to be the best destination for wardrobe essentials such as T-shirts, hoodies, great-fitting pants and denim. What began as one brand has grown to include Gap, GapKids and babyGap.
