Advertising

 

We place print ads in major metropolitan newspapers and their Sunday magazines, major news weeklies and lifestyle and fashion magazines. Our ads also appear in various outdoor venues, such as mass transit posters, exterior bus panels, bus shelters and billboards. We have also run TV ads for Gap, Old Navy and Banana Republic and radio ads for Old Navy. We plan to continue our investments in advertising and marketing in 2005. There can be no assurances that these investments will result in increased sales or profitability.
