Huh, I always figured that clothing companies geared towards the younger generations wouldn’t feel the brunt of the recession…lolposted over 4 years ago
I think a lot of businesses fail like a chain reaction from the bad economy.
And I guess, in some places, they don’t sell as much as other stores.(not as widespreadly known!)
But I’m glad they’re safe!posted over 4 years ago
I’m really not surprised…because lately they’ve gotten expensive out the yin yang.posted over 4 years ago
i know that to make money you’ve got to spend it and/or get investors, so i think it was more of a “we need more money, who will invest in us now during the recession?” also, a year ago there was only one AA here in Las Vegas. now there are 3, and one outlet (ONE store rarely ever seems to have customers in there everytime i stop by). if they are over-expanding in other places as well, i can understand why they had a moment (or will have) a moment of instability. just look at Starbucks.posted over 4 years ago
Are they a publicly traded company?
Honestly, I like the look of some of their stuff, but I always end up finding a more affordable version elsewhere.posted over 4 years ago
The recession is hitting companies that don’t make smart investments. Most the people that shop at the cheap clothing retailers are probably taking a big hit, and losing their jobs, or having their time and pay cut back. That’s why AA is probably in trouble.posted over 4 years ago

There’s an American Apparel 50% off sale at Hautelook.com for the next 35 hours or so. This is probably the only time I’d consider buying from the company.posted about 4 years ago
