Flagship store devoted to Southern California lifestyle by Abercrombie &
NEW YORK, June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SoCal meets SoHo on July 16 as
Abercrombie & Fitch opens the doors to the first EPIC Hollister store in New
York City. The four level store will be located at 600 Broadway, on the
southeast corner of Houston & Broadway.
It's 40,000 square feet of pure California fantasy. It's walking along
Huntington Pier, hanging with the hottest crowd at the beach while the waves
crash around you...literally! "The EPIC store is what Hollister is all
about--big waves, surf, sun, and hanging out on the pier," said a Hollister
rep. "The laidback HCo. vibe is effortlessly cool, and we're bringing the
SoCal lifestyle to SoHo."
The first of its kind in the world, Hollister Co.'s EPIC store is about
sight, sound, scent, taste, touch, and most of all, positive energy. It is
without a doubt the coolest store to open in NYC. EPIC will be SoHo's must see
Check out EPIC at Hollister's microsite www.hcoridethewave.com featuring a
first look of store construction, downloadable screensavers, postcards, and a

coolest, best looking people to be store models. Board shorts and flip flops
