Gap to Close 175 Specialty Stores and to Cut 250 Jobs in North America

Gap announced it is planning to close more than 175 specialty stores in North America over the next few years, in a move to improve business performance. Of the proposed store closures, over 140 will occur this fiscal year 2015. The company plans to decrease its store count and streamline its headquarter workforce, primarily in North America. The company is expected to post annualized sales loss of around $300 million associated with the store closures. The company will slash 250 jobs at its headquarters during fiscal year 2015. After reducing its store fleet size, the company will continue to operate 500 Gap specialty locations and 300 Gap outlet stores across North America. With the proposed changes, the company is expected to save around $25 million in costs annually, beginning in 2016.
