“We are pleased with our positive comp and earnings growth this quarter,” president and CEO Art Peck said in a statement. “We’ve made substantial improvements in product quality and fit, and our increasing responsive capabilities are enabling us to better react to trends and demand.”

It hasn’t been pretty for brick-and-mortar shops. In addition to a rash of store closings, Sears is also battling dwindling inventory , while its CEO publicly battles one of the department store’s biggest tool vendors. Macy’s is shutting stores at a rapid clip. Even billionaire investor Warren Buffett has piled on .

A boost to Gap’s stock will be welcome news for shareholders that have suffered through a 13% drop over the past week. The stock has slipped 24% since reaching an almost 14-month high on November 17.
