American Eagle Outfitters has announced plans to expand its flagship brand and its Aerie brand throughout Europe.

The expansion is the result of a multiyear license agreement with AEO EU, a partnership of experienced European brand builders led by Sunil Shah.
The first American Eagle retail stores will open in Ireland this summer, followed by a three-year brick-and-mortal expansion strategy that will span Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Czech Republic, the U.K. and the Netherlands. A European Union-based e-commerce site is also in the works.
