American Eagle, Aerie Coming to Tuscaloosa’s Midtown Village

American Eagle and Aerie will open next month at Midtown Village, according to Crawford Square Real Estate Advisors, the leasing and management company.

This will be the second location for Aerie in the state of Alabama. The lifestyle brand opened its first Alabama store at Birmingham’s The Summit last year.

American Eagle is a jeans and apparel brand with clothing and accessories, while Aerie provides intimates, apparel, activewear and swimwear. Both retailers are owned by American Eagle Outfitters.

American Eagle and Aerie will have two separate storefronts with more than 4,000 square feet along Midtown Village’s Main Street. The stores will be adjacent to Francesca’s and Southern Roots Salon.

“We are thrilled to add two more retailers that cater to the college-age demographic in Tuscaloosa. These brands will deliver on-trend essentials we know our shoppers will enjoy,” Mary Beyer Lell, head of leasing for Crawford Square Real Estate Advisors, said.

Aerie and American Eagle will open on Thursday, July 14 at 9 a.m. Midtown Village will celebrate the grand opening from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. with giveaways, a live DJ, Bloom Flower Truck and other activities.
