The athleticwear brand launched e-commerce operations in 1999, but physical stores didn't follow until more than 10 years later.

After Gap acquired Athleta in 2008, the retailer brought the brand to the physical space in 2011, planting its first flag in San Francisco. The chain currently has about 70 stores, with plans to grow to around 100 this year.
