Hoping to boost online sales, the Gap now allows shoppers to purchase from Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy and Piperlime in one check-out process. Per the Wall Street Journal, "Until now, shoppers had to visit the company's Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy and Piperlime sites separately to make purchases. By integrating the sites, the San Francisco-based company hopes to encourage shoppers to purchase products from more than one of its brands." Items from Gap, Banana and Old Navy will ship together, while Piperlime purchases will be shipped separately. [WSJ]
