Say it ain’t so. American Apparel is shutting down all 110 U.S. stores by the end of April, the Los Angeles Times reports. That means the days of shopping through racks of plush t-shirts and hipster-friendly hoodies will soon come to an end.
In November 2016, the brand filed for its second bankruptcy within a 13-month period and reported $177 million in debt. In addition to the financial woes, American Apparel also experienced backlash for its raunchy ad campaigns and for putting pubic hair on mannequins. In 2014, the company ousted founder Dov Charney after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced, but American Apparel hasn’t been able to bounce back since then.
We’re definitely sad to see the iconic LA-based brand go, but it isn’t all bad news. Right now, you can take 40 percent off of all inventory online. And you can expect deeper discounts in the future. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite styles that you need to stock up on before they’re gone for good.
