Gap Inc. is definitely a retail business that has a past story that has inspired costumers and anyone wanting to take a step into the world of retail business. Don and Doris Fisher created the Gap in order to cater to their needs, but in the process helped thousands of customers find what they needed when it came to certain merchandise. The year 1969 was a year to remember in the business of retail. Located in San Francisco, California, Donald G. Fisher and wife Doris Fisher opened the very first Gap. Don Fisher initially had no real experience in the business of retail seeing as he made his living from real estate, but when Mr. Fisher could not find the right pair of Levis jeans to fit what he wanted, he decided to take matters into his own hands. He decided to open up his own retail store that would have everything that a customer could dream of having. In order to get his start Mr. Fisher had to identify the type of clothing and the age group that he would appeal to. Considering the time period and his original dilemma with finding the right pair of jeans he found his niche. During this time jeans had become the trend among teens, and even though he wasn’t a part of this generation he felt that he could be more successful in selling to this specific generation. Hence, the name the Gap was given to the retail store that he established. Jeans had become the type of clothing......

The Achievement Gap

...The Achievement Gap How would you feel knowing your children won’t be able to have a good education because you are a minority or just because you don’t have enough money? The achievement gap is a difference in academics between different races and even in different social statuses. The major differences in the Achievement Gap are in the different grade levels, test scores and dropout rates between different ethnic groups The Achievement Gap affects a lot of people because they drop out before they develop adequate reading, writing, and mathematical skills. The Achievement Gap is a serious problem that affects Latinos and African-Americans because it reduces their educational opportunities and there are low expectations for those students; however groups like Harvest Prep are trying to close it. For Latinos and African- Americans, the Achievement Gap reduces their educational opportunities. One way the Achievement Gap reduces their educational opportunities is that “Only 1 in 50 Latinos and 1 in 100 African American 17-year-olds can read and gain information from specialized text—such as the science section in the newspaper compared to about 1 in 12 whites.” (Bottoms) This is saying that it is much more difficult for African- Americans and Latinos to understand some texts, but reading is only part of the struggle for minorities because they don’t get help when they are little they just get passed on to the next grade for someone else to deal with them. Another way......

The research was conducted in five health spa centers in the West Morava river valley region during August and September 2008. The reach is aimed at testing of Gap model, i.e. identification of exceptions when the hotel services quality in the observed sample is concerned. Key words: Gap model, SERVQUAL, hotel services quality Introduction The concept of the quality is topic which holds the central place in the services marketing. However, the attempt to define quality in scientific circles causes a number of dilemmas. The main reason for that lies in the fact that quality does not represent a purely “clear” scientific concept. Although the term “quality” is widely used in everyday speech, it is not often clear what that quality actually stands for, i.e. defining a quality can be a rather subjective concept. The base for a scientific definition is connected with the approaches to the concept of quality from two main standpoints - of a producer – quality represents harmonization with procedural rules in the process of production and service offer, and of a costumer - quality stands for the entire......

...Customer Gap The Customer Gap, as a kind of distance between customers and manufactures, describes a measure of the degree of separation. The higher the Customer Gap, the higher the risk of generating customer dissatisfaction, losing loyalty, decreasing net promoters and eventually compromising all the company long term growth. So that the bigger the wedge, the bigger the disconnection, the bigger the Customer Gap will be (Gafo, 2010). In another word, the customer gap is difference between customers expectations service and customers subjective perceived service. According to Zeithaml, V, A. &Bitner, M, J. (1996), customer expectations are beliefs about service delivery that function as standards or reference point against which performance is judged. These authors develop an argument which is that customers hold different types of expectations for service performance (Zeithaml and Bitner, 2003). Customer expectation is what the customer expects according to available resources and is influenced by cultural background, family lifestyle, personality, demographics, advertising, experience with similar products and information available online. Customer perception is totally subjective and is based on the customer’s interaction with the product or service. Perception is derived from the customer’s satisfaction of the specific product or service and the quality of service delivery. The customer gap is the most important gap and in an ideal world the customer’s......
