American Eagle is one of the most successful modern retailers who has scaled utilizing a massive retail rollout. Showbest was fortunate enough to develop a relationship with American Eagle in its initial stages. We were first given an opportunity with American Eagle to prototype watch and jewelry stands. In light of the brand’s growth potential at the time we worked hard to value engineer multiple products, implement cost savings throughout, and worked with a variety of agents across the company. We were initial asked to work on stores in Boston, Las Vegas, and San Francisco with the promise of further growth.
Since the initial partnership, we have completed 3,500 stores, including 134 in one year in the US and Canada. There are currently five different design programs underway with the brand.
American Eagle has evolved over time and we have adjusted to keep our materials up-to-date. Over time our projects together increased in complexity, requiring additional metal and glass to create a more upscale experience for example.
