American Apparel S.F.

Los Angeles–based T-shirt manufacturer and retailer American Apparel confirmed it will build three more stores in the San Francisco Bay area by March 2005. The stores, ranging from 3,000 to 6,000 square feet, will be built in Berkeley and in San Francisco’s China Gate and Haight-Ashbury neighborhoods. The company also plans to open more stores in Hollywood in December: one across the street from the Hollywood & Highland shopping center and the other at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Cherokee Street. A store in Los Angeles’ Westwood section will open in early 2005.
