After recently opening its first Australian store as part of the Westfield Sydney redevelopment, Gap has also debuted its first four wholly-owned stores and online retail store in China. 

Redmond Yeung, Gap China president, said Gap is the first American retailer to open in China.

“We are excited to introduce Gap’s cool, modern American designs to Chinese consumers.  I believe customers will be extremely pleased with fit, quality and the affordable style of our clothes, including our newest and most successful product, the 1969 Premium Jean,” he said.

Gap has opened two stores each in Shanghai and Beijing around the theme “Let’s Gap Together,” celebrating the coming together of China and the US.
