American Apparel, Inc., a vertically integrated manufacturer, distributor, and retailer of branded fashion basic apparel, is announcing the move of its popular New York City warehouse sale to a new space in SoHo this Friday, August 17, 2012. The massive sale, previously on 6th Avenue and 25th St, will now be located on 285 Lafayette St (Between Houston St. and Prince St.) and feature more than 50,000 garments.

"We've been blown away by the response to this sale in NYC and popular demand has resulted in multiple extensions of what was originally intended to be a limited run for the holidays. Now, with this new and even better location, we're excited to keep going and keep trucking in great garments for customers who have come from all over the world to shop at the sale," said Marsha Brady, a creative director for American Apparel.

More than 300,000 people have attended the sale in NYC since it opened its doors last year, making it far and away the biggest event American Apparel has ever held. The new 7,000 sq foot location, located in a great shopping district, is set to push that number even higher.

The broad assortment of items promises to include not only a spectrum of the brand's massive selection of T-shirts, leggings, sweatshirts, and underwear, but also thousands of samples, one-of-a-kind garments, endearing imperfects, iconic styles from the company's past, over-runs, over-dyes, off sizes, vintage pieces and more.

There will be many surprises, unusual product runs, and sizes available, all of which has been made in the USA. Inventory will be replenished all day, every day during the sale and customers are encourage to return to the sale as many times as they want to shop newly added products. Cash, credit, and debit are accepted, and admission is free.
