Ljubljana, 22 July (STA) - US clothing retailer Gap has announced plans to open its first stores in Slovenia in the autumn, as part of an expansion which will also see it open stores in neighbouring Austria.
The popular US clothing chain expects to open three stores in Ljubljana as part of its launch in Slovenia.
Separate adult and children's clothing stores are planned for the City Park shopping mall, while another will be open in the centre of town.
The franchise in Slovenia has been acquired by Magistrat International, a distributor of several major clothing brands in the country and operator of the Emporium department store.
The launch of stores in Slovenia is part of an expansion that will also see the retailer enter the Austrian market in cooperation with the company Gottexx.
