Discounts on Gap Factory and Banana Republic Factory Websites
May 2016: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Gap and Banana Republic for allegedly deceptively advertising discounts on Gap Factory and Banana Republic Factory store websites by representing that consumers get a specified percentage off a listed “original” price when the items are actually never sold at the “original” price and the discounted prices are actually the everyday, regular prices. The lawsuit was transferred to federal court in July 2016. (Munning et al v. The Gap, Inc., Gap (Apparel) LLC, Gap International Sales, Inc., Banana Republic LLC, and Banana Republic (Apparel) LLC, Case No. 16-cv-3804, N. D. CA.)
