Old Navy opens it first store in UAE
Gap Inc’s largest brand to open in Dubai in November
Dubai: American apparel brand Old Navy said on Sunday it is opening its first store in the UAE in November this year, at the Dubai Festival City.
This is the fifth franchise market expansion for Old Navy. In March 2014, it opened its first franchise-operated stores in the Philippines and has since opened stores in Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
Old Navy is part of the Gap Inc portfolio of brands, which also includes Gap, Banana Republic, Athleta and Intermix. The brand’s move into the Middle East builds on the success that Gap and Banana Republic have experienced since entering the market in 2007, the company stated.
It added that the brand’s entry into the UAE marks its continued global growth strategy.
