I wouldn't step a foot in there.

And now he wants to allow larger sizes in his store? How nice of him.

LOL! Now after Abercrappy alienated all sorts of shoppers, they realized they need money. They forgot, many shoppers hold a grudge and they have done plenty to alienate everyone!

I have never even been in one. We have a Hollister (which is under the same umbrella), I think I went there once in high school. But it was so overpriced and nothing really appealed to me. If I wanted cheap, trampy clothing (because, you know) I'd go to Charlotte Russe or Deb. If I wanted preppy, Aeropostale (good sales, and more fun). If I wanted emo teen rebel, there was Hot Topic. Of course now as a near 30 year old none of those places cater to my demographic although I still check out CR once in a while for fun. I would not allow my child to purchase anything from A&F or Hollister. Because for one I don't agree with the company's values/marketing strategies, but for another, that junk is too darn expensive for what you get. A&F is a dinosaur, even in the Midwest.
