Avenue debuted in 1983 as a plus size retail store. In 1993, Avenue opened our Distribution Center in Troy, Ohio, allowing customers to get their goods faster than ever. By 2000, the Avenue.com website was launched. Avenue restructured in 2012 to become Avenue Stores, LLC.
Today, the business includes both retail stores and ecommerce and has grown into the leading Plus Size Specialty Retailer. With approximately 300 stores, Avenue sells everything to keep your closet on trend season after season. Offering beloved brands like Cloudwalkers® Comfort Shoes and Maidenform® shapewear, Avenue Body® and Kenneth Cole Reaction handbags, you’ll find everything you need to complete an outfit for work, play and everything in between.
