The Aeropostale closing sale is going so well that it’s not going to. Close, that is.
The current liquidation—60 percent off, everything must go—will continue into December. But once everything goes, Aeropostale, and its loungewear offshoot Live Love Dream will reopen in January at 500 of its 700 locations, including Mall of America.
Like many of its 20th Century teen rivals, which once ruled the mall, Aeropostale has fallen on hard times in recent years. It was bought out of a Chapter 11 reorganization earlier this year and the new owners were planning to keep around 230 stores open. But the new ownership group reportedly discovered the teen retailers is more profitable than originally thought. So they revised their downsizing plans.
Meanwhile, lots of good deals on leggings and hoodies.
