the best juniors clothing store ever. the atmosphere when you go into the store is really relaxing. although it is owned by abercrombie and fitch all of the prices there are at least half the price. if you think hollister is expensive then you must be poor. it is not just on the west coast. it is also in new england and scattered around the rest of the U.S. i live in silver spring, md and there is one less than 5 minutes away. hollister is a great place to work because you get to wear the clothes while getting paid. the shirts have the cutest slogans on them. the jeans might have holes in them but for all of you that dont have any taste in style (goths etc.) that is in style unlike the crap you are wearing and not all of the jeans have holes. so if you were inteligent enough to read what i just wrote you should be able to realize that hollister is a great store all together.
i just got back from hollister and i just bought two shirts $10 each and a skirt $20. and i got gifts certificates for my friends because they like hollister too.

Company owned by Abercrombie and Fitch that is taken off of the actual city, Hollister, California. (I would know, I live here...)
Cheaper than Abercrombie, still hella expensive, but honestly-- who gives a damn?

If you're really that materialistic to be caring what other people are wearing, then you have serious issues. Let the people wear what they effing want to wear. Do I wear Hollister? Not particularly. Do some of my friends shop there? Yes. Do I care? No. Should I? No. If I find something cute that I like there that doesn't cost too much should I get it? Yes.

Honestly people. They're JUST CLOTHES! I can't believe you people are discriminate of people because of their clothes. How effing retarded can you get?
Stupid emo kid that hates everyone and everything: "Oh my gawd, what a lame ass. They're wearing HOLLISTER..."
Real Person: "...and...?"
Stupid emo kid: "WHAT A LOSER!"
Real Person: "...and you care, why?"
Stupid emo kid: "Because! They shop there!"
Real Person: "O...kay..."
Stupid emo kid: *runs off crying* "I hate Hollister people! WAAAAH!!!"
Real Person: "...moving on...!"

A brand that people who say they don't care about clothes hate... And the same people who "don't judge based on appearance" hate anyone who wears Hollister or Abercrombie. Its interesting that you can have your own styles and yet it apparently makes you a bitch to shop at hollister. Did you know that fasion is considered an art form? It is in the metripolitan museam of art: "Fashion." So why can't people care about what they wear and that includes wearing whatever clothes they want to: vintage shops, goodwill, target, nordstrom, zoomiez, pacsun, ae, abercrombie, hollister, urban outfitters, ann taylor, thisisit, small boutiques, ANYTHING. And people have a right not to be stereotyped for what they wear, and that includes people who wear Hollister.
"I dont care about what people wear... unless they wear hollister or abercrombie: then I hate them!!!"

(is there a contradiction there?)

A store owned by Abercrombie and fitch which tailors to the "surfer" image. They sell their shirts tight, their shorts big, and all of it is just a bit less expensive than Abercrombie and Fitch. They have some nice stuff- their jeans and shorts and shirt are durable, and most everything I own from their is very comfortable to wear. They do cater to guys and glas who like to keep good care of themselves, but I don't know a single girl or guy who shops at Hollister and is gay. The Gay ones that I know all shop at Urban outfitters, Gap and Banana Republic.
Guy: I like this polo. A&F has one like it for 20 bucks more.

Girl: I like this skirt. Who cares if someone doesn't? I'm not the one dressing them.

owned by abercrombie&fitch to emulate southern california. slightly cheaper than its parent company, but still the same price as costly all black wear from hot topic, who is owned by GAP(who is also grouped with banana republic and old navy) Workers are typically young, attractive, slightly snobby kids who (before being hired) must have a sense of fashion. A higher quality alternative to its direct competitors (american eagle, the buckle, etc.)
shirt, jeans, belt and flip flops @ HCO = $130.00

shirt, overisized pants, metal belt, black doc martins, trench coat and multiple chains and rings to make you look "scary" and gothic when you're really a puss = $250.00+

a really nice store- similar to abercrombie and fitch..but a lot cheaper..and a lot of stereotypical ppl talk trash bout..gooodness; if you cant afford a 15 dollar t-shirt thenn go to the clearance rack and get them for 10 bucks..yeah their clearance rack has cute clothign for under 10 bucks too! alot of ppl can afford 10 or 15 dollar tshirts but just trash on the store because they have no reason to hate on ppl who wear it. just calm down everyone.if you like the clothing; buy it, if you don't; just go shop at your other clothing store that is probably same price for a tshirt.
hollister is awesome..cute clothing for basically anyone that has a descent looking body!

A store found in most malls across America that is owned by the slightly more expensive Abercrombie. The style is more laid back and casual compared to it's peppy counterpart. Some of the prices are absurd to say the least, however if you like a shirt then I'm sure you can wait until it goes on clearance (it doesn't mean your poor, it's about saving money). Some of the clothes sold there have "HOLLISTER CO. CALIFORNIA" plastered on them, others have a very classy touch with just a small label on them. Their label is a seagull in various colors depending on the shade of the garment. Personally, I prefer both kinds of the attire. But that's just me :)

Middle schools in the midwest (Kansas, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois) are the top sellers of the apparel. Ironically, California is one of the least popular hollister co. states. In the top selling states, most kids sport the obnoxious advertisment instead of the much more subtle shirts. Jeans found in the stores are usually light colored, pre-ripped, and EXPENSIVE. You can get the exact (if not better) quality of cloth at Aeropostale on sale for less than $10.

Another ironic point is that most of the shoppers there have no drivers license, therefore they usually have to bring a parent in with them to the stores. The "cool" aspect of the stores is that they have music to hurt your ears and darkness all around with the exception of dim yellow lights on stands which hold the clothing. The majority of adults do. not. enjoy. this. So they forbid some kids to shop there. Go figure.
Girl: I found this cool shirt at hollister co.!
Girl 2: Wow you conform to a cookie cutter image you should be asha-
Girl: Umm... so what do you spend YOUR money on? Hot topic clothes? That doesn't make you better than me.

Mom: GOD why the hell is this music so damn loud?!?!
Girl: I don't know.
Mom: I can't see a damn thing!
