Central Europe's 1st GAP store opens in Poland

GAP has openned its first store in Central Europe in Warsaw, at the time when the region is facing an economic slowdown.

Some 200 shoppers waited for the opening on Thursday at the Polish capital's Arkadia mall. They said the price was only slightly higher than at other brands and justified by the quality.

GAP Inc. and its Polish franchise partner, Ultimate Fashion, are planning to open more stores in Poland next year and then expand to other countries in the region, where there is still room for U.S. clothing brands, Ultimate Fashion Marketing Director, Anna Lacka said.
