Old Navy History
Sometimes it is the competition that brings out the best in people and companies. Old Navy was a store created by such a competition. Old Navy is a division of the Gap Inc. corporation, a company founded in the 1960s to offer clothing, initially at low prices, and later as a slightly higher end clothing brand. In the 1990s, Target decided that it wanted to take away some of the customers that tended to shop at the Gap by creating a division that was branded as the less expensive Gap. The Gap of course did not like this competition and retaliated by creating Gap Warehouse in 1993.
Gap Warehouse was initially not a separate entity, but a creation within the existing retail space that Gap stores had. So, wherever you had a Gap Store, you started to have Gap Warehouse locations created within them. This allowed the brand to spread quickly. In 1994 Gap Warehouse was renamed to Old Navy and the first two independent locations were created in California. These locations slowly started to grow and expand, changing previously created Gap Warehouse locations into Old Navy locations.
In the end, Old Navy managed to spread to over 1100 locations and can be found in pretty much every major American city. So, if you search Old Navy Near Me, you are bound to find one near you.
Today, Old Navy brings in an annual revenue of more than $6 billion, which is more than Gap’s actual Gap brand and their Banana Republic, combined. To say the least, it has grown into an impressively large and successful company.
