Gap has said that its net sales for the four-week period ended October 31, 2015 were 1.20 billion dollars compared with net sales of 1.26 billion dollars for the four-week period ended November 1, 2014. For the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, Gap’s net sales decreased 3 percent to 3.86 billion dollars compared with 3.97 billion dollars for the third quarter of last year.

On a constant currency basis, net sales for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 were flat versus last year. The company noted that the translation of foreign currencies into US dollars negatively impacted the company’s reported net sales for the third quarter by about 98 million dollars, primarily due to the weakening Japanese yen and Canadian dollar.

“With fall behind us, the teams across our portfolio are focused on strong execution for the holiday season," said Sabrina Simmons, Chief Financial Officer, Gap.
