History of Express

Express, a popular American fashion retailer, traces its roots back to 1980 when it was founded as a women's apparel brand by Michael Weiss in Chicago, Illinois. Initially named Limited Express, the brand quickly expanded its offerings to include men's clothing as well. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, Express became known for its trendy and affordable fashion targeting young adults. The company continued to grow and evolve its brand identity, eventually dropping the 'Limited' from its name in 2001 to become simply Express. Over the years, Express has expanded its presence with hundreds of stores across the United States and a strong online presence, offering a range of contemporary clothing, accessories, and personal care products for both men and women, catering to the fashion-forward consumer.
