Aeropostale, Inc. or occasionally known as Aero for short, is a mall-based, specialty retailer of casual apparel and accessories, principally targeting 14 to 17 year-old young women and men through its Aeropostale stores and 4 to 12 year-old kids through its P.S. from Aeropostale stores. This fashion brand has always represented a sense of adventure, achievement and dedication since it opened in 1987. The history of the name Aeropostale dates back to the 1920’s. Compagnie Generale Aeropostale, a pioneer airmail company, was the first ever to fly between France, South Africa, and South America. Hence, the early Aeropostale stores captured the essence of this airmail voyage both in the original store design and in the aviation styled leather bomber jackets that they sold.
