American Apparel unveils online store in Singapore

American Apparel, the vertically integrated clothing manufacturer based in downtown Los Angeles, has announced the launch of a new online store serving Singapore.

The store, located at store.americanapparel.sg, will be the company's first e-commerce portal targeting Singapore and its growing online audience in the region. Up to the launch of the new online store, customers in Singapore shopped through the company's international e-commerce store, located at store.americanapparel.net. The large number of purchases made by Singaporeans, second in Southeast Asia only to customers in Hong Kong, marked it as a prime candidate for its own web store.

"Singapore is one of the most prosperous markets in Southeast Asia and it's a big one too--over 5.1 million people. For many years we've been shipping orders to loyal customers there and now with this new store we'll be exposed to a bigger audience and be able to provide better, quicker service," said Christina Naetscher, web director for American Apparel.

The store will accept orders placed in Singapore dollars. Inventory will be shipped from the company's Los Angeles-based factory, allowing for a full selection of products to be sold. The standard shipping fee will be SGD10, with a delivery time of five to eight working days. The store will have a free shipping threshold of SGD100.

his will be the latest online expansion for American Apparel, which in recent months has launched a web store for Hong Kong as well as a mobile store in Japan. In addition to these web stores, the company also operates 13 retail locations in and around Southeast Asia.

American Apparel is a vertically integrated manufacturer, distributor, and retailer of branded fashion basic apparel based in downtown Los Angeles, California.
