Nice Going, Abercrombie & Fitch

It takes some real work to dethrone Walmart as "The Most Hated Retailer in America".

But you guys did it!

Back when they sold sporting goods, I bought a travel-version of a fly fishing setup for him at an A&F store. It had about six segments that one would put together to assemble the rod, along with all of the other accouterments. It might have even had a spinning reel, as well, it's been a very long time. At first, Dad was dismissive, but he took it on a couple of trips and grew to like it.

But that was before A&F remade itself as a clothing store for skinny, low-budget young poseurs who were spending their parents' money.

I can't see a reason why most people would even go into their stores, absent a need to either serve a summons or arrest somebody. The stores wouldn't even be worth robbing, since said poseurs pay with plastic.

"That" Abercrombie & Fitch folded forty years ago. Today it's just a name that changes hands from one sleazoid marketer to another.
