When was Express founded?

Express started in 1980 as an eight-store experimental division called Limited Express for what is now Limited Brands. The brand went from zero to a billion dollars in sales in ten years. In 2001, the Structure division of Limited Brands was folded into Express to create the powerful, dual gender brand that exists today.

In July of 2007, Express was sold to Golden Gate Capital, a private equity firm based in San Francisco. Express became a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange in May 2010 under the ticker EXPR.
