International sales rise at Gap in September

Like-for-like sales at Gap dropped 11% for the five weeks to October 4, but international like-for-like sales rose 3%.

Net sales over the period were down 6% to $1.34 billion (£800 million). The Gap chain had a 3% drop in like-for-likes, while Banana Republic experienced a 4% decrease, and Old Navy a 24% drop.

"While our September merchandise margins were significantly above last year, we have more work to do at Old Navy," said Sabrina Simmons, chief financial officer at Gap Inc. "As consumers continue to deal with economic uncertainly, we'll remain focused on delivering compelling reasons to make our brands their shopping destinations."
