Abercrombie & Fitch who are famous in America for their once controversial hiring policies, are now looking to embrace the world with their preppy apparel. Abercrombie & Fitch said it is still on track to open flagships stores around the world including an Abercrombie & Fitch flagship store on the Champs Elysees in Paris in 2011. Abercrombie opened its first overseas store in London last year and opened its first European Hollister Co. mall-based store in a suburb of London last month.
The company said it is on track to open flagship locations around the world in 2009, including debuts of its namesake stores in Copenhagen and Tokyo along with Abercrombie & Fitch and Abercrombie stores in Milan. Also, Abercrombie continues to pursue lease arrangements for additional store locations in Europe and Asia.
