To the dismay of Yo! Venice, an American Apparel has taken over a storefront on Venice Beach's Ocean Front Walk. The space, located on the ground floor of the Thornton Lofts building, is plastered with posters for the brand's summer Rummage Sale, and commenters have mentioned that it has the air of a pop-up store. We've put in an e-mail to the company, and will fill you in on news of its permanence. [Yo! Venice]
