|The latest fake A&F "store" to open.|
Merchandise within the fake shop is purportedly comprised of Abercrombie & Fitch, abercrombie and Hollister wares. From observation from outside, it cannot be determined whether the merchandise itself sold in this store is counterfeit or not...though can't put it past them. Funnily, what is said is about this awful fake shop is that the prices are actually much higher than buying off of A&F Family authentic retail and online stores.
If you are unsure of whether a store is real or not, check out the store locator on each of the brand's official websites (abercrombie.com; abercrombiekids.com; hollisterco.com; and gillyhicks.com). It's your only source for all official A&F Family stores around the world. And to emphasize, Abercrombie & Fitch Co. only sells its products directly via its official retail and online stores.
