The American-made clothing retailer’s last day in business was Friday, December 23, an employee at the shuttered American Apparel told What Now Atlanta over the phone Tuesday.

The Shops Around Lenox American Apparel was one of nine “poorly performing” locations nationwide that are slated to close by December 31, according to the Wall Street Journal.

American Apparel’s Atlanta-area locations in Atlantic Station and Little Five Points will remain open for now as the retailer prepares to auction an estimated 90 stores in January.

A U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del. approved the closures of the nine stores, including Tribeca and Georgetown outlets in New York; Seattle; Dallas; Memphis; Santa Cruz, Calif.; Evanston, Ill.; and Burlington, Vt., last Monday.

In November American Apparel filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for a second time, having filed a little over a year ago in October, 2015.

No word on what will replace American Apparel Shops Around Lenox.

  1. Second time in 2 yrs. .Over the same rumored closings in previous 2yrs. How they came back was a surprise in itself. The brand already took hits after it peaked. Not a bad company just soo continous, overprice new thrifted item or difficultly cut clothes shortly in season
