American Eagle Outfitters was founded in 1977 with the launch of the first store in Michigan, USA.
In the beginning of the nineties, the Schottenstein family from Ohio, one of the most successful retailers in the world took over the company. Under their leadership, a brand that offers high-quality, on-trend clothing at affordable prices was developed.
American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. is now a portfolio of brands, with AEO for 15-35 year-old girls and guys, 77kids for grade-schoolers, and little77 for infants.
AE has over 1,000 stores worldwide and 30,000 employees.
Over the past few years, AEO expanded into the international market. In 2001, stores in Canada were launched and 3 franchise stores in the Middle East were opened. In addition, in the beginning of 2011 franchise stores were also opened in Hong Kong, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Egypt and in the beginning of 2012 stores were launched in Israel and Japan. To this date 16 stores have opened throughout Israel. The stores in Israel are identical in their concept and collection to the AE stores in the US, and give the same special shopping experience characteristic to the brand in the USA and around the world. AE plans to continue expanding globally and opening in additional countries.
The corporate offices are in three locations - Pittsburgh, New York City, and Hong Kong.
In 1994, AEO went public on NASDAQ under the "AEOS" symbol. Over the next decade, the company demonstrated outstanding growth and profitability, solidifying its position as a leading lifestyle brand. In March of 2007, the company began trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "AEO". Our shareholders include associates, individuals, large financial institutions, socially responsible investment funds, and everyone in between.
