Results for the first quarter include pre-tax charges of approximately $2.7 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, related to the closing of the Company's Jimmy'Z concept.

Julian R. Geiger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The last three months, like the ten consecutive quarters that preceded it, was a period of record sales and record earnings for Aeropostale. We all know these results are extraordinary given the macro-economic climate in which we are operating. Clearly, we are proud of our organization's determination to succeed and its dedication to the principles that have made Aeropostale a destination lifestyle brand."

Second Quarter Guidance:
The Company announced its earnings guidance for the second quarter of fiscal 2009. The Company believes it will achieve earnings in the range $0.43 to $0.45 per diluted share for the second quarter, compared to earnings of $0.31 per share in the second quarter last year. This guidance includes pre-tax charges of approximately $3.0 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, related to the closing of the Jimmy'Z concept.

Julian R. Geiger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, concluded, "It is exciting to see that a new generation of teen customers has identified Aeropostale as one of their top brands of choice and has embraced it as its own. We are fully committed to maintaining and building this leadership position by listening to, and respecting, our customers every day."
