SECAUCUS, N.J., Oct. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Children’s Place, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCE), the largest pure-play children’s specialty apparel retailer in North America, today announced the completion of an $80 million secured term loan financing with Crystal Financial LLC.

Interest is payable monthly, at the greater of the three month LIBOR and 1.00%, plus 7.75% or 8.00% depending on the average excess availability of credit under the revolving credit facility.
