Gap Inc. is recognizing its frontline hourly employees with a special bonus.
The retailer will give a $300 bonus to the approximately 70,000 hourly employees who support its stores, distribution and call centers in the United States, Canada, Japan, U.K., the Republic of Ireland and Italy.
“From quickly learning new ways of working with health and safety protocols to adapting to a surge in demand for online and in-store services like ship from store, buy online pick up in store and curbside pickup, our employees’ commitment and determination helped us get through a year like no other and we are coming out of it stronger than ever, together,” the company stated.
Last week, Gap reported a strong first-quarter with net sales that were up 89% from a year ago, and 8% above the 2019 quarter. Comparable sales rose 28% year-over-year, and were up 13% from 2019.
