GAP just Laid off
Just heard that GAP's TA team has faced some layoffs. They have been today today and given 2 weeks notice. Don't know how many
Any day now

Due to missed Q2 earnings - Gap Inc and all brands have been asked by the board to begin company-wide cost optimization including but not limited to headcount reduction, store closures, etc.
