Gap began selling only Levi’s products in every size and style with a guarantee to never run out of stock. Inspired by Tower of Shoes in Sacramento, businessman Don Fisher was friendly with Levi’s president Wally Haas Jr. Working with Levi’s director of advertising, Fisher and Levi’s split advertising costs. They worked around anti-trust laws by allowing any other retailer who agreed to stock only Levi’s the same deal. The first Gap store opened in 1969 in San Francisco, followed in 1970 by a San Jose location. By 1971, Gap had over 25 locations, and opened their first east coast store in Vorhees, New Jersey. By 1974, Gap had shifted to stocking private label merchandise. The company grew exponentially, but faltered in the 1980s and 90s failing to maintain a brand identity that resonated with consumers. Gap launched a lower priced mass market brand Old Navy in 1994, and purchased the Banana Republic brand in 1983 retooling it as a more upscale brand. Gap has struggled to find an identity, Old Navy has outperformed them with their low cost ever evolving offerings. Gap owns over 3000 company operated and franchise stores globally. Gap made 834 million in 2018, Old Navy 1.18 billion, and Banana Republic made 475 million.
