The Lower East Side location of American Apparel – one of the first in the Manhattan market – shuttered Monday afternoon, as first reported here. It anchored the corner of Orchard and East Houston Streets for over a decade.

Now corporate is trying to sell off its furniture and other window dressing accessories. Namely, those hypersexual, well-endowed mannequins for which the store netted notoriety over the years. The company, currently in Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, took to Craigslist for the requisite fire sale. All goods must go by end of day today. Make sure you have $50 in cash for that mannequin; Christmas will be here before you know it.

In related news, a contractor was spotted yesterday evening removing the colorful neons from the marquee. Empire, fizzled.

An American Apparel spokesperson further commented on the situation, and even hinted that 183 East Houston was actually one of the “underperforming” locations. Seems hard to believe. “This store closure is a next step in implementing our previously announced turnaround plan, which includes closing underperforming locations and investing in new stores in promising areas.”
