Fantastic new string of shops in the UK
Member Name: MattJames
Advantages: Quality of goods, shop is unique, friendly staff
Disadvantages: Sometimes a bit overpriced, not enough changing rooms.
Hollister is a branch off of Abercrombie and Fitch, and is pretty new to the UK. When I first visited Milton Keynes, we walked past where the old Zavvi used to be and saw it had been replaced by something that looked like a hut jutting out from the wall. Intrigued, we went in to the shop to find it was a new "trendy, casual" clothes shop.
Mainly stocking items that could be seen as a surfer style, the shops are absolutely unique in design. Seperated into many sections, the shops are dark, filled with plants and sofas and lots of clothes. The design is amazing, you don't want to leave. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and while I had quite a wait til I could use the changing rooms, I was not too bothered in that the people working there were more than happy to chat, and the music playing fitted the theme of the shop so well.
But what are the clothes like? Well, I have so far only bought polos and shirts from there, but they are some of the most soft items I have ever bought. Extremely well made too, they feel like they are of excellent quality, and at just over £20 a polo, are of fairly good value. However, I feel it would be better if it was just under this price point as the designs are nice but sometimes fairly bland. However, as I have said, the selection is fantastic and there's always a few things to grab my attention. The clothing certainly catches the eye of other people, often enquiring as to where I have got it from.
Summary: A great shop to treat yourself in.
