Gap

Description:

In 1969, Don and Doris Fisher opened the first Gap store on Ocean Avenue in San Francisco. The name came from the difference between children and their parents, called "the generation gap", which reached its peak with the hippie movement during this period. Originally, it sold denim and records, but the Fishers wanted to do more. They wanted to support the people who ran their company, to be active in their communities, and to have a positive impact on the world.

Today, the Gap is one of the world's largest fashion retailers with five international brands Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, and Intermix and manages over 3,165 stores in 90 countries, with an additional 459 stores operating under franchise agreements. Although the Fisher family is no longer active in the company, they maintain a 44% stake.
