What's Better? : Hollister or Abercrombie?

          Which one is better? Hollister and Abercrombie are very much alike especially since they are owned by the same people ( at the moment ). But, their perfume, clothes, and format of the store is almost exactly the same. I have to admit there are some differences but, not much. The question is which one is better. Abercrombie or Hollister? You will soon find out about how to make this decision. 

*Making it's big start in 1892, Abercrombie has been a hit for teens. It has been around for 124 years. Founded by David T. Abercrombie and Ezra Fitch. Although they are trying to aim for consumers ages 18-22.  Abercrombie is actually quite expensive for it's fine-quality pieces.  It has many varieties such as sweaters, pants, sweatpants, perfume, tote bags, flip flops, hoodies, and many other fine pieces.  Abercrombie has lots of choices to choose from! Which is beneficial for new shoppers who will defiantly come back. 


  Hollister began in 1922, and was established by John M. Hollister Jr. Targets consumers ages 14-18. The first store opened in July 2000 at Eastern Town Center in Columbus, Ohio. Sells lots of beach themed outfits such as shorts, tank tops, t-shirts, bathing suits, flip-flops, and etc,. During the winter and fall they also still sell sweaters, hoodies, jackets, etc,. Many pieces of clothing are fluorescent/neon or sometimes black, white, or grey. These clothes will be beneficial to wear in the Summer or Spring since their so bright. Has good quality and amazing sales. It sells a right amount of clothing for shoppers to chose from!

   I think Hollister is better honestly. It almost as great quality as Abercrombie and it sells for cheaper. Hollister clothing has more designs are their shirts/stops which many girls like to wear. Also most of the cheapest items in Abercrombie are just plain tank tops while in Hollister they actually have a print on it. But, this is just my opinion! You can decide which is better, Hollister or Abercrombie. Take the poll on my blog please! I would like to see the results! (:

  1. these girls clothing are so cute.

  2. Hey! Thanks a lot for sharing the difference here. I have always been very confused between the two. Although, I did try a new brand from where I bought Carbon 38 workout clothes. Well, I have to say that I have never been so happy about my shopping. I am glad I found this as well.
