Gap (GPS) says it plans to launch a new service that will allow customers to order products from its online catalog from inside some Gap brick-and-mortar locations.
The new order-in-store program will begin later this year. By adding the online in-store orders, Gap is hoping to better integrate e-commerce and brick-and-mortar operations — a strategy called “omnichannel” sales, Dow Jones notes.
Gap has already introduced a reserve-in-store service that allows shoppers to reserve products through mobile and online platforms at certain Banana Republic and Gap Stores. GPS indicated that it plans to roll out the reserve-in-store program to all U.S. locations during the second quarter.
In Friday morning trading, GPS shares fell more than 1%. GPS stock closed at $39 a share on Thursday.
