Aeropostale’s revenue has declined by 40% in the last five years due to closing of almost 280 stores and a 25% decline in revenue per store. Lack of fashion merchandise, long-standing basic image issues and the rapid growth of fast-fashion retailers all contributed to the retailer’s bad performance. This pushed Aeropostale to usher heavy markdowns to drive store traffic, that eventually lowered its margins leading to a 65% decline in EBITDA over the last five years.
