Lubbock location of Abercrombie & Fitch closed down

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Lubbock's Abercrombie and Fitch is no more.  The South Plains Mall says the Lubbock location closed a little more than two weeks ago. 

"Their lease expired and they just chose not to renew," says mall spokesperson Beth Bridges.  "That gives us a couple good retail spaces.  We hope to have new stores in those spaces this year."

The national chain of casual-wear clothing stores dropped Lubbock from its company map with little fanfare and no official public statement. 

A quarterly report to investors says, "In addition, as previously indicated, for the fiscal quarter ended January 29, 2011 the Company expects to record exit charges associated with the closure of 56 domestic stores during the quarter."

The recently-shuttered locations were not specifically named in the investor statement. 

Abercrombie & Fitch is known especially for its marketing which often consists of black & white photos and has in the past featured partial nudity.
