Gap Expansion Will Create More Than 500 Jobs In Tennessee

The global retailer will invest approximately $41.7 million in the expansion of its Gallatin, TN distribution campus.

Gap Inc. will create more than 500 jobs at the company’s distribution center in Gallatin, TN. The global retailer will invest approximately $41.7 million in the Sumner County distribution campus on Gap Boulevard. The new capital investment will go into technology upgrades as Gap Inc. expands its online fulfillment capabilities.

Gallatin TNGap is one of the largest employers in Sumner County, operating more than 2.8 million square feet of distribution space as part of the company’s North American network of distribution centers.

“We’ve been proud members of the Sumner County community for over 20 years and our Gallatin team members are some of the best in the business,” said Shawn Curran, Executive Vice President of Global Supply Chain at Gap Inc. “The Gallatin distribution campus continues to be a key strategic location for growth and opportunity. Its central location and access to a strong labor force are key for continued investment in Tennessee. We pride ourselves on a deep level of commitment to our employees, customers and to the communities where we live and work, and look forward to many years of continued growth.”

In July 2016, the retailer announced a $3.1 million investment in Gallatin to meet growing demand for e-commerce sales on Gap Inc.’s brand websites.

“Gap Inc.’s latest commitment to create more than 500 new jobs is yet another confirmation that Tennessee’s central location and skilled workforce make it the ideal place for global companies to operate major distribution facilities,” said Gov. Bill Haslam. “Gap Inc. has long been a crucial part of Sumner County and this significant expansion brings us closer to our goal of making Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

“The long-term health of Tennessee’s economy depends on investments and job creation from our existing businesses such as Gap Inc.,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe. “Gap Inc.’s third major investment in Sumner County over the past four years is a strong vote of confidence in Tennessee’s advantages for doing business. We’d like to thank Gap Inc. for its commitment to create more jobs in Sumner County and look forward to its continued role in the strength of Tennessee’s economy.”
