USA: Trade Center Retailers Focus On Employees
Lost stores and the health and whereabouts of employees have remained a primary focus for retailers with outlets in or near the World Trade Center over the past few days.

Gap Inc. employees left safely, as did those of Marks & Spencer owned Brooks Brothers, who have a location across the street from the Center. Their site was later used as a rescue centre.
