OFFLINE by Aerie is an expansion of the very popular brand of leggings and activewear from Aerie that launched in July of 2020. The garments are built for movement, comfort, and real life.

However, OFFLINE by Aerie is more than just leggings. The new store will offer an assortment of leggings, bike shorts, tops, sports bras, fleece, bottoms, and accessories.

Back in April, OFFLINE by Aerie announced the opening of many stores throughout the country and what to expect, "At OFFLINE by Aerie stores, you’ll be met with a bright and airy layout, alongside features that encourage you to MOVE. We’ve added deets like a custom ping-pong table and a ballet bar in the fitting room, plus an H2O station to keep you hydrated. And of course, you’ll get to know the cozy feel of our leggingssports brasbike shorts, and more."

The new Empire Mall location is planned to open before Thanksgiving. The OFFLINE by Aerie will be located next to Aerie by American Eagle, and across from the new Anthropologie.

This announcement comes on the heels of another fashion retailer announcing a new home in The Empire Mall. Windsor Fashions is also set to open before Thanksgiving.
