Yes, American Apparel is having a Labor Day Sale! I’ve had so many questions from readers about this one, I thought I would go ahead and post.  Until Sept. 1 , American Apparel is offering an extra 30% off sale items with code BIGDEAL via their website.  If you’re ready to go to their brick and mortar stores around Los Angeles, you’ll also find sale items in store as well.   The brand known for their racy ads is discounting clothes for men, women and kid.  If you’re still “back to school” shopping, this is a good time to shop.
