American Eagle Outfitters to Debut in Mexico
January 29, 2013
Pittsburgh-based American Eagle Outfitters Inc. will open its first company-owned store in Mexico on Feb. 20. The store will be located in Perisur’s shopping center in Mexico City. Part of a strategic plan to expand in North America, the company plans to open a series of vertically owned and operated stores in Mexico. Each store will include an Aerie presence either in-store or in a nearby standalone space. In 2012, American Eagle licensed stores in Japan, Israel and Poland and continues to grow its presence in the Middle East. Currently, the company operates stores in 13 countries and ships online to 77 countries internationally.
