A cute, trendy store that is OWNED BY Abercrombie and Fitch. It is not an "offshot" of said store, but is owned by it. Those who claim that Hollister is a wannabe A&F store need to check their sources, and need to learn to research before sounding like idiots and dissing something they know nothing about.
Also, Hollister as well as Abercrombie clothes are both comfortable and of extremely high quality, therefore bringing the higher prices (in Abercrombie, that is, Hollister is less expensive). It is business code to highten the prices when the quality goes up, which is why a shirt from WalMart becomes destroyed two weeks after buying due to its lack of good quality. Good quality = higher prices. Its not rocket science.
Person A: "Hey, I like your shirt, whered you get it?"
Person B: "Oh, thanks, I got it from ____ (Abercrombie and Fitch/Hollister)"
Person A: "Oh, their stuff is such crap. Stupid, too small clothes, and way too high priced."
Person B: "Really? Thats odd, seeing as I've had this shirt for about three years, and its just as nice as when I bought it. They have very high quality clothes, hence the higher price range."

Is an offshoot of Abercrombie & Fitch that sells California-inspired apparel to 14-18 year olds. Hollister’s clothing is similar to A&F’s but is less expensive and more beach/surfer. Stores are usually dark and feature loud blaring music. A great place to find the latest in faded and torn denim.
Look at these great outfits I got at Hollister they were way cheaper than A&F !

A magical, beautiful store where confused young suburbanites in landlocked cities across America can spend $200 to sport surfwear, pre-ripped jeans, and cheap, mass-produced "vintage" shirts. Usually occupied by extremely snooty employees distracted by the latest news on who Ashley or Amanda is dating this week.
"OMGZ! i just gotz these hawt jeanz frum Hollister letz go surfn on a pond sumwere. LOLZOL!"

A typical middle-of-nowhere city a little south of the Bay Area in California. Seriously, go look it up on a map. So the next time you have "hollister" stamped on your ass, remember: You're from a hicktown, not a beach!
Girl: "Check out my new Hollister shirt dad!"
Dad: "WTF? Why are you supporting Hollister? And take those pants off, you're 8 years old for god's sake!"

Hollister is a clothes store that is like an abercrombie, but is themed to west coast. They have clothes costing less than abercrombie's but with the same good style. NOTE: Abercrombie and Fitch owns the Hollister Co.
Abercrombie and Hollister are owned by the same company.

A clothing store that is owned by Abercrombie & Fitch. It has a "West Coast feel" and is actually a great store. It targets teenagers and recruits good looking college kids to work.

I do understand some hate it and think its a cult, but I worked at one and the people are amazing and it actually is exactly what the haters say. An overpriced place to buy torn jeans, but hey here's a thought...why not buy the non torn jeans for $30 and do it yourself like most of the workers do at the store.

The clothing is of better quality than most the of the stores out there and is cheaper than A&F.

AND its not only for white people, I am hispanic and worked there and we had blacks and asains there too!
person 1 "Where did you get those great fitting jeans?"
person 2 "Oh at Hollister"
person 1 "You paid 100 dollars for jeans?!?"
person 2 "NO I paid 30 dollars...haha"

Like Abercrombie & Fitch but more eco-friendly; Hollister realizes you can conserve energy because people don't need the lights on to shop.
Bev: Hey!, Jo look at this grey shirt I just got at Hollister!
Jo: Ummm... Bev, that's white.
