American Apparel is, aside from Goodwill, one of the only retail chains doing well these days. So it makes sense that Dov Charney isn't letting up on his expansion plans even though the economy is in the toilet. His latest acquisition is 205 Bleecker Street at Sixth Avenue, which is currently home to the Banana Republic Monogram concept store (which will be vacating the space within the next two months). Guess it's time to update the map!
