J.Crew’s current owners, TPG Capital and Leonard Green & Partners, might be selling all or part of the retailer, which they acquired in early 2011 (much to the surprise and ire of some J.Crew shareholders). There’s also a possibility of an IPO, according to WWD. But it’s all conjecture at this point, because no one at the company will confirm anything. If it does go up for sale, though, any well-seasoned J.Crew fans should know better than to pay full price, ever — wait for the right promo code to arrive in your inbox (30 percent off and free shipping for your shares, at the very least).
