Out With a Whimper, and a Coupon

A humbled, generous-feeling American Apparel speaks: "The hearing hosted in the Mission last week was a real eye-opener for us, making something we've been thinking about for a long time much more tangible. Seeing this strong public reaction to our potential effects on a neighborhood forces us to pay even more attention to the issue of gentrification and the impact of our new stores. Maybe we're not a fit for the Mission, but we love the neighborhood and are glad there are people out there this passionate about protecting its character. ... Finally, we'd like to invite everyone from the Mission to any of our SF locations between now and March 15 to get a 25% discount on anything in the store." Nice to see some material rewards in kicking out the American Apparel too. [Mission Mission]
