Apparel and accessories retailer Alloy Inc. is close to spinning off its merchandising operations to shareholders. The new separate company includes dELiA*s, Alloy and CCS brands and will sell apparel, accessories, footwear, room furnishings and action sports equipment directly to the youth market through catalogs, web sites and retail stores.
