American Apparel filed for bankruptcy for a second time this past November. Now, Seattle-based Amazon, Los Angeles-based Forever 21, New York-based Authentic Brands, and California-based Next Level Apparel are reportedly considering purchasing American Apparel.
So far, the highest bidder is Canadian-based Gildan Activewear at $66 million. This bid would not grant Gildan ownership of the stores, but rather the rights to American Apparel’s intellectual property and inventory.
A winner is expected to be declared next week.
