Well it's about time we got a piece of the American chain-store action, dontcha think? It's been announced this week that Gap will be heading down under later this year, with the first store opening in Melbourne's Chadstone Shopping Centre. Stefan Laban, vice president of Strategic Alliances for Gap. Inc, told WWD the Melbourne store will rival other "great Gap stores in New York, London and Paris," and will provide a "true Gap experience" for the Australian consumer. The two-level store will include co-brands BabyGap, GapBody, GapKids and denim, not to mention the exciting designer collaborations including Stella McCartney for Gapkids. A Sydney store will be rolled out in 2011. Yay!
