A beautiful town in California.

Know for being "out in the middle of nowhere," the birthplace of the american biker back in the incident of 1947, and also for its rich farm and ranch heritage.

It only has one high school, San Benito High School. The school mascot, the haybaler, has been voted the 2nd most original high school mascot in the United States.

Hollister is known for being a little more conservative than its other central coast neighbors, but most people are quite accepting of others, much more so than other so-called progressive towns in the area.

Many of the local kids hate the town claiming its too boring and will often go to other towns to have fun. The fact is that these people aren't Hollister natives, often times, they left bigger and nastier towns for Hollister's positive atmosphere.

The local Target store is probably the most hip place in town. It's semi-jokingly refered to as our mall.

Hollister is a beautiful town and everyone should visit!

Hollister is the best town ever!!

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.
