A store run by Gap, Inc., which postures itself as the "upscale" line by being more expensive than both Gap and Old Navy. After you rummage through a few pile of shirts and scour the whole store for anything colorful, one realizes that it is no better than the Gap and with the quality just as lacking. Banana Republic tirelessly competes with J. Crew, its primary rival, although the corporate execs forget that a store filled with beige, brown, and khaki only invites a similar trend of mediocrity. Why bother?
Banana Republic is the de-facto anchor of most suburban, outdoor lifestyle centers, thus cheapening the image of the brand.
