Do you have a product that is perfect for Gap Stores and You Want to Become a Claire’s Vendor?
Are you looking to sell your product to Gap stores? If so, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, Karen Waksman, founder of Retail MBA, will provide you with some tips and strategies to consider when selling to the Gap.
Gap is a massive retailer with over 3,700 stores and multiple brands, such as Old Navy and Banana Republic. This is actually a good thing for you, as it allows you to get into the retailer using a “sideways” approach.
Becoming a Gap Vendor
When you go after a retail chain, one of the things you’ll note is that if they like your product, they’ll give you a vendor number. This vendor number is gold, as it allows you to sell to them and serves as your identification number as a vendor.
What’s great about Gap is that they share the same systems across all their brands, which means they usually share the same vendor number. So, if you sell to Banana Republic, you’ll get a vendor number that will also work for the Gap and Old Navy.
This is a great way to make the buyer’s job easier, as they don’t have to deal with paperwork or anything new. All they have to do is test out your product.
Because Gap is such a massive retailer, they are very concerned with quality. They’ll have people come to your warehouse and manufacturing plant to make sure you can handle their volume and see the quality.

What Can I Share With You About How to Become a Gap Vendor?
The Gap is a massive retailer that owns multiple brands, including Old Navy, Banana Republic, and the Gap. This is actually a good thing for you because you could probably get into the retailer using a sideways way.
When you go after a retail chain, one of the things you’ll note is that if they like your product, they’ll give you a vendor number. This vendor number is gold because it will allow you to sell to them. It’s your identification number as a vendor.
The Gap also owns Banana Republic, Old Navy, and other brands. What you don’t typically know is that the retailer shares the same systems across the board, which means they usually share the same vendor number.
So, if you sell to Banana Republic, you get a vendor number, and that vendor number would work for the Gap and Old Navy.
One little trick that a lot of reps know about is that once they get a vendor number from one of the chains, they will go after the buyer who’s different in the different retail subsidiaries and reach out to them. They let them know that they already have a vendor number, so it will be very easy for them to test the product.
Why Would a Buyer Care About That?
The buyer doesn’t have to deal with paperwork or do anything new. It would be very quick and easy for them to work with you, and buyers love that. They’re busy and don’t have time for things that make their lives easier.
The Gap is also very concerned with quality. If you’re going to be doing business under their brand name, they will check out your warehouse and manufacturing plant. They’ll have people come to your facility to make sure that you can handle their volume and see the quality.
If you want to know how to pitch the Gap, what to say to buyers to get them to buy, and how to find the buyers, there is additional training available. You can get a free training program on RetailMBA.com.
You can also check out her full Retail MBA training program. In a weekend, you’ll know exactly what to say to all buyers to get them to buy and so forth at all the major retailers.
