The Warrendale, Pa.-based teen retailer, which was acquired by Apax Partners in May for $1.1 billion, opened three RueGuy departments last week and plans to have 20 in place by yearend. The stores that opened Friday with RueGuy departments were located in Bay Shore, N.Y.; Harlingen, Tex., and New Boston, Ohio, and are about 6,000 square feet each. They’re the first of seven RueGuy departments slated to open around the country in August alone.
