Report: American Apparel to close Bridgeport Village store
The company, which is reorganizing under chapter 11 bankruptcy, filed to close eight stores, including the Bridgeport Village store, in bankruptcy court, the Portland Business Journal reported last Thursday. The stores are expected to close Jan. 30, according to the report.
A spokeswoman for CenterCal Properties, which owns Bridgeport Village, said she had no information to provide on the Business Journal's report. The Times also reached out to American Apparel for comment but has not yet received a response.
The Business Journal printed part of a statement it said it received from American Apparel calling the closure a next step in implementing our previously announced turnaround plan, which includes closing under-performing locations and investing in new stores in promising areas.
The Bridgeport Village store is one of three American Apparel locations in the Portland area. The other two in downtown Portland and in southeast Portland were not named in the bankruptcy court filing, according to the Business Journal's report.
