Gap Inc. to add 600 New Jobs in Sumner County
GALLATIN, TN (WSMV) - Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and economic and local government leaders announced Gap Inc. will expand operations at its distributing center in Gallatin.
Gap Inc.’s Gallatin operations currently service retail and online shopping orders. As customer demand for online shopping rises and Gap Inc. works to grow its online business to around 50% of revenue over the next three years, expanding its omni fulfillment network will allow the company to deliver a faster, more efficient shopping experience to customers across the country. The expansion will create 600 full-time jobs and represents an investment of $83 million.
“Businesses continue to choose to expand in Tennessee because of our skilled workforce,” Lee said in a news release. “Gap Inc. has expanded their operations and distribution center in Middle Tennessee because of the hard-working residents of Sumner County. I congratulate Gap Inc. on this project and thank the company for its continued commitment to Sumner County.”
“The pipeline in Middle Tennessee is booming and a contributing element in that momentum is Sumner County,” Tennessee Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe said in a news release. “Gap Inc’s continued investment and expansion at its Gallatin site is the perfect example of what makes Tennessee a great place to do business.”
