Claire’s is an American retailer of accessories, jewelry, and toys primarily aimed toward tween and teen girls. It was founded in 1961 and is based in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The company is primarily owned by Elliott Management and Monarch Alternative Capital. As of October 27, 2012, Claire’s has 3,469 stores in 37 countries: 1,947 in North America; 1,141 in Europe; and 381 franchised and licensed stores elsewhere in the world. Their stores are in 96% of all U.S. shopping malls, and Claire’s has done more ear piercings than any other retailer, over 90 million in 25+ years. In 1996, Leslie Mann of the Chicago Tribune stated: Although the management of Claire’s says the company doesn’t advertise and is deliberately low-profile, the name “Claire” is as familiar to female Baby Boomers as “Ringo”. To the Boomers' mall-cruising daughters—and, more and more, to their sons—it’s right up there with singer Puff Daddy.
