So I read news that American Apparel almost became a history with shitty economy.
Read the article

I always thought they were doing really well because I buy clothes from them all the time, my friends do too, etc

Though, I must say I am relieved that they are safe.

well people are probably buying less nowadays but it seems like AA is still a very popular clothing line and people are continuing to buy from them
so yeah, they seem pretty safe

Huh, I always figured that clothing companies geared towards the younger generations wouldn’t feel the brunt of the recession…lol

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!

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.

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.

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.

i think i’m one of the few people that’s still doesn’t understand this brand and so could care less if they went away. too pricey for too plain.

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.
