American Apparel's ousted CEO hardly has much to celebrate these days, but there'll be a decidedly happier scene at his former company's shops. Starting this week, the summer-ready basics brand is throwing in-store shopping parties every Friday through July.
Happening from 6 to 9pm, the first installment takes place this Friday, June 26th at the DTLA-based label's Echo Park store (2121 W. Sunset Blvd.) Shoppers can save 30% off storewide while enjoying gratis bites, beverages, and live beats by a Viva Radio DJ. The retail therapy fete continues July 3rd in Santa Monica (2654 Main St.), July 10th in Los Feliz (4665 Hollywood Blvd.), and July 17th at the Downtown factory store (747 Warehouse St.).
