Gap said on Thursday that September same-store-sales fell 3% while analysts had expected a gain of 1.6%, according to a data compiled by Thomson Reuters. Sales at Banana Republic stores declined 5%; it dipped 3% at GAP stores while it slipped 2% at Old Navy stores. Shares were down nearly 7% by mid-day trade.
