US: Gap silent on India speculation
Global clothing chain Gap Inc has refused to comment on Indian press reports it is looking for ways to enter the country's retail market.
The US firm has discussed a possible venture with Indian operators including Reliance Brands, Madura Garments and the Future Group, according to India's Economic Times.
"We don't comment on rumours," a spokesperson for Gap told just-style.
Gap announced plans to enter the Australian and Italian retail markets earlier this year.
While the Australian launch is with a franchise partner, the company will use existing European teams and distribution infrastructure to open its first Italian store in Milan this year, and Rome in 2011.
