Abercrombie & Fitch Bargains for a rebound

Abercrombie & Fitch

Oh my Gosh! Is Abercrombie actually putting clothes on sale? According to this article they are but they are not too happy about it. It almost seems like forever Abercrombie has been know for its very expensive brand attached to preppy clothes that are only ok quality. With most of Abercrombie’s competitors slashing prices for the holidays price-conscious teens are now realizing they can find bargains elsewhere in addition to Abercrombie’s fashion trends not being totally up to date. Hollister is also guilty of the high marked clothing and also plans to mark down items as much as 40%. “Once you lose your brand loyalists-and you have to do a lot to piss them off-you don’t get them back” is alot of what has been said about Abercrombie’s super high prices. The company plans on opening some stores in Japan and Copenhagen in hopes of raising total revenue but is the damage already done? It is so unethical to charge almost $40 for a “printed tee” that is almost see-through (cheap quality). You could go to American Eagle and spend a little less and get better quality clothing for you money. I personally own one top from Abercrombie and it was a gift that didnt even fit because their large is a small (the women know what I am talking about). It is about time that Abercrombie realizes how much they are ripping people off and I am also very happy to hear that this generation of teenagers is wising up to Abercrombie’s pricing tactics!

    I think that teenagers are the ones who let the price to stay high or low, it all depends in how much we shop in these boutiques. I think is better clothes than Abercrombie & Fithc but we are the only ones who pay the highest prices to try to stay cool. I don’t blame the company for the high prices if the company can find suckers who pay high prices.

    I think Abercrombie & Fitch have to rework their pricing strategy if they want to say on the market or really try to offer something different. Their clothes don’t look any different than American Eagle and Hollister that keep competitive price.
