Banana Republic moves selected London job roles to the US

US retailer Banana Republic is moving an undisclosed number of product and supporting job roles from its London office to the global headquarters of its parent company Gap in San Francisco.

Banana Republic confirmed the plans but refused to say how many roles were affected, when the move would take place or what would happen to those currently employed in London.

A spokeswoman said: “Like any other brand, we regularly assess our operations and make business decisions accordingly. 

“We’re moving some international product and supporting positions from London to our San Francisco office to be part of a global merchant and inventory management team.  

“We believe this shift will help us be more nimble and create a consistent global brand experience. Many other functions that support the market will remain in the London office.”

Banana Republic has more than 750 company-operated and franchise stores in 27 countries. It has nine company-operated UK stores including seven in London, one in Bath and one in the Trafford Centre, Manchester.

Its London office is located in the same building as Gap in Berkeley Square, London.
