American Apparel coming to Valley Fair Mall in San Jose
Sep '09
American Apparel will soon be opening a new location in the Valley Fair Mall in San Jose.

The location is located next to the GAP, not far from the Apple store location famous for its debut releases of the iPod and iPhone. Although still in the design and construction phases, the store is set for an expansive tiled, mirrored ceiling and will be nearly 5,500 square feet, making it the biggest American Apparel mall store to date.

"Valley Fair is a special mall in San Jose because it serves so many different audiences in the Silicon Valley. Having an American Apparel in a fashion destination that also caters to business people and families opens us to a unique intersection of customers and cultures," said Dan Abenhaim, an American Apparel operations manager.

In addition to American Apparel's staple collection of basic T-shirts, sweatshirts and underwear, the Valley Fair store will be big enough to feature the company's expanded Kids and Babies line which has 30 newly designed pieces. American Apparel has also added new fabrics and prints, like striped men's button down shirts, floral swimsuits and water-color tights.

The company will hire close to 30 employees for this store through open calls and online applications. People who are interested in working for American Apparel are encouraged to follow the company's blog for announcements or apply through the job section of the website.

American Apparel is known for its provocative advertisements, outspoken political viewpoints and its Sweatshop Free labor policy.
