With American Apparel already struggling–shares plummeted another 26 percent Wednesday to 81 cents a share–it doesn’t help that the brand’s Park Slope store was burglarized recently.
At 5:27 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 8, two male perps entered the Flatbush Avenue store. One was dressed in black shorts, black sneakers and a white t-shirt; the other in white shorts, white sneakers, and a white baseball cap. They were carrying bags from Bed, Bath & Beyond. Soon after they walked in, a store clerk witnessed the men stuffing about 30 dresses in assorted colors into the bag, worth a total of $1,344. The thieves fled on foot and the dresses were not recovered.
