American Eagle Outfitters Leaves Hollywood & Highland

The retail exodus continues at Hollywood & Highland, the Hollywood-themed shopping center in the heart of Hollywood and just a few doors down from the TCL Chinese Theatre, formerly called the Grauman's Chinese Theatre.

American Eagle Outfitters, which had a prime location right on the ground floor off Hollywood Boulevard, closed its doors earlier this month after being at the shopping center for years.

It joins a number of big national retail chains that have left Hollywood & Highland in the past year or so. Those include BCBGMaxAzria, Oakley and QWest. Guess moved from the main courtyard to Level 1 of the Awards Walk.

Right now, the main retail stores at the shopping center opened in 2001 are Victoria's Secret and Forever 21. Forever 21 will be moving into a larger space once occupied by BCBGMaxAzria and Guess, but the Oakley store remains vacant. For a while, the pop-up Museum of Failure took over the Oakley space, but it has moved on.

The QWest store is now occupied by a Walgreens store.
