Aéropostale flies high in the world of youth fashion. The retailer operates more than 1,100 mostly mall-based stores under the Aéropostale and P.S. from Aéropostale (for kids) banners in 50 US states, Puerto Rico, and Canada. Aéropostale stocks the usual teen outerwear (jeans, T-shirts, accessories), mostly under the Aéropostale and Aéro names. It designs and sources its own merchandise so that it can quickly respond to trends. The Aéropostale name originated from a 1920s airmail firm, Compagnie Generale Aéropostale. The brand was created by R.H. Macy & Co. as a private label in the 1980s and later became a specialty store concept.
