APC to open second US store this SaturdayÂ and it’s inÂ Los Angeles. It’s been a long time coming when we consider the first APC store in the USA was in Manhattan 15 years ago! “I’m not keen about opening a store every five minutes,” said company founder and president Jean Touitou. That’s a major understatement! “I don’t sit there and say, ‘Let’s not do anything so we can build up my cult,”Â said the man. “I believe there are way too many clothing stores all over the place.â€¦I’m not a real estate developer, and most of the fashion brands are. But after 15 years, I thought a second store is a good thing to do.” And get this a third APC store, surplus, is due to open in September in Brooklyn.
