Gap sales flat in August

US fashion giant Gap said that total sales and like-for-like sales were flat in August with mixed results across its fascias.

Sales were $1.1bn (£713m) across the group in August, the same as in August 2009.

International sales, which includes the UK, were up 5% for the month compared to a drop of 12% last year.  

Sales at Gap in America were down 1% for the period with sales at Banana Republic up 6% and sales at Old Navy down 2%.

Gap chief financial officer Sabrina Simmons said: “While results were mixed across our brands in August, we remain focused on our overall goal of driving top line sales growth.”

Year-to-date net sales for the group hit $7.77bn (£5bn) for the 30 weeks to August 28, ahead 4% on last year.

At the end of August Gap launched its first transactional website for UK customers for its eponymous and Banana Republic offers.
