As of April 2014, the Citi Trends chain of North American stores does not allow consumers to purchase clothing directly from its webpage. However, brands and clothing lines carried by Citi Trends Inc. can be purchased online through other retailers or from third-party auction sites. Additionally, Citi Trends gift cards are available at third-party webpages.
The Citi Trends webpage includes information about the Savannah, Ga.-based company, as well as biographical information, a store locator feature, target demographic information and information on franchise opportunities (including real estate requirements and typical building dimensions for a Citi Trends store). The webpage also includes up-to-date information and press releases relating to stock price and investor tools. Citi Trends Inc. was originally named Allied Department Stores, and was founded in 1958 before changing its name in 2000. Citi Trends Inc. describes its business as "a value-priced retailer of urban fashion apparel and accessories for the entire family," and includes clothing for men, women and children alike. In addition to both nationally recognized and private label clothing, Citi Trends also offers a limited number of home items in its stores. As of the company's fourth quarter in 2014, Citi Trends operated 513 stores across 29 U.S. states, and reported a net income of $1.5 million dollars in that fiscal quarter.
