By the end of this week, the American Apparel online shop will be no more.

Earlier this year, the brand was acquired by a Canadian wholesale company that had no interest in its remaining stores, which means that all locations will soon close. Since then, American Apparel has been running a huge 40%-off-everything sale; the discount rose to 50% off this month.

However, the company sent around an email this morning announcing that this is the very last week you’ll be able to shop online. So if you want something, you better get it now.

Below, a roundup of some of the best things that are still hanging around.

Most of the classics are sold out online and only available in stores (which for the most part are pretty bare), with the exception of the Unisex Tri-Blend V-Neck Long Sleeve T-Shirt ($17) and the Cropped Fisherman Pullover ($38).

Your best bet, really, is the new spring merchandise, which hit the site like business as usual in March. The Denim Hooper Jacket is $44.50, the Ashbury Rib Sabine Midi Dress is $21, and the off-the-shoulder Glace Rib Carmen Top is $22. You can shop the entire women’s spring collection here.

A lot of the new men’s tees are only available in either a XS or XL, so if you’re either of those sizes, you’re in luck! The Tri-Blend Crewneck Pocket T-Shirt is $12, and the Tri-Blend Henley V-Neck T-Shirt in a new oatmeal color is $14.50. There is a decent-sized selection of men’s denim left, though, including the Sid Jean ($39.50), the Austin Jean ($44.50), and the Denim Rad Short at the very rad price of $24.50.

The TL;DR: There’s definitely still stuff to pick through, but sizes are limited. (And everything is, of course, final sale.) If you have some time today, it’s worth clicking around — especially if you have particularly fond memories of AA from college and aren’t quite ready to say goodbye.
