KENTWOOD, Mich. (WOOD) — A new concept for clothing store Aerie is now open at Woodland Mall.

Offline by Aerie is located in a new 3,600-square-foot storefront in the JCPenney wing of the 28th Street mall. Inside the store, visitors will find racks of athleisure clothing, which has surged in popularity since the COVID-19 pandemic pushed more people to work from home.

This is the first Offline by Aerie store in Michigan. Aerie, which is a brand from American Eagle Outfitters Inc., launched its first Offline location at a mall near Nashville, Tennessee in November 2020.

Woodland Mall is home to more than 100 retailers, including a traditional Aerie store. Alex and Ani, Lovisa, Popular Demand, Rose & Remington and Totally Tea recently joined the mix at the mall.
