People of the Big Dig: Chris from American Apparel

More than just the basics! American Apparel offers clothing for all occasions! Meet Chris, the store manager! It’s always a pleasure visiting the store -  stop by and get the summer’s latest must have fashion pieces today! 

What is your favourite thing about downtown Kingston?

The people! The community of downtown!  I love seeing all of the familiar faces!

Kingston is beautiful in the summer with the lake and all of the various activities that go on!


What’s your favourite product/service that you offer?

American Apparel is known for its amazing basics but we just came out with a new line of T-shirts and Tank Tops called the The Ultra-Light 50/1 Jersey.  The term Fifty Single refers to the gauge of the thread, the higher the number, the finer the thread.  These are perfect pieces for the summer!

What is your background?  

I am a born and raised Kingstonian!  I've worked at American Apparel for 9 years now and I love having a store in the downtown core where there is such a great community of people!  I'm very proud to work for a company that has such high standards when it comes to fair wages and making our products in the USA and not out sourcing off shore for any kind of products.
