New York & Company Petite Clothing

New York & Company has taken a bite out of fashion's big apple. The firm caters to women looking for moderately priced apparel (jeans, dresses, and coordinates) and accessories (sunglasses, costume jewelry, handbags, and hosiery) at the mall. The chain sells its proprietary branded fashions through some 585 stores in 44 states and online. Limited Brands acquired the ailing company (then known as Lerner Shops) in 1985, but after failing to revive its fortunes, sold the company to an investor team including CEO Richard Crystal and Irving Place Capital for $153 million in 2002. The new owners took New York & Company public in 2004 and purchased Jasmine Company in mid-2005.

Lerner in 1918 in New York City, New York and Company was previously traded under the name Lerner New York.  During the 1960's, Lerner New York was controlled by The Rapid-American holding company controlled by Meshulam Riklis, which also controlled McCrory stores. In 1985, Lerner New York was purchased by The Limited, who owns brands such as Express and Victoria's Secret.  When Lerner New York was sold by the Limited in 2002, the company operated as both "New York and Company" and "Lerner New York".  Today the company operated under the name New York and Company and offers propriety branded merchandise through an exclusive network of retail stores as well as online and through catalog sales.  New York and Company currently operated more than 500 retail stores in 45 states.
