Like Abercrombie & Fitch but more eco-friendly; Hollister realizes you can conserve energy because people don't need the lights on to shop.

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!"

A store that works with Abercrombie (which was an outdoors store about 30 years ago). Hollister is themed upon California. It's a line of clothing and has a perfume line for male and female. Pretty new to the American population, but is coming closer and closer to getting the popularity of Abercrombie. Even though they are incorporated together, the competition still thrives! The cost could be expensive at Hollister, but it's much cheaper than Abercrombie, and their style is more bright and trendy, while Abercrombie gives mostly a dark-colored and casual look. At Hollister you CAN find something very casual and at Abercrombie, you CAN find something bright and trendy. Pretty much everything at Abercrombie stays in fashion, while Hollister gets new trends. There are pros and cons for both of those. If you desperately need clothes there to be cheaper, work there for a discount or get a discount from a friend or family member that is an employee. Or simply wait for a sale. Even at the store, there are always trends from a couple months ago for a cheaper price. But PLEASE, whatever you do, DON'T buy from Hollister or Abercrombie because you'll think you look cool. Buy them because you like their fashions. :)
Ashton: I saw these torn jeans at Abercrombie, the ones with holes in them, but they're $50!

Kaitlin: oh my god! Go to Hollister! I got mine from there! You can get something like that for maybe $40!

Ashton: No, I'll just buy plain jeans from Abercrombie and put holes in them. *leaves*

Kaitlin: God, she's such an Aberzombie.

Hollister is a "preppy" store which opened its doors in 2000, in the Easton Town Center in Columbus, Ohio. Its parent company is Abercrombie. Hollister clothing is known to be cheaper than AF, mainly because the first Hollisters were taking all profits away from Abercrombie (this is called "cannibilism").

Hollister, or HCO, embodies a laid-back Californian lifestlye. They haved ranked top in Teens' Top Clothing Brands.

Logos: SoCal, a seagull, HCO

Fictional story: Hollister claims to be founded by J.M. Hollister in the 1920s.

Hollister is infamous for their clever advertising tatics. They print their name on the clothing, thus subtley (or not so much -_-)spreading word about Hollister.

Their stores are often made to mimic a beach party. They are dark, reeking of prefume, and loud. Lounge chairs and magazines are provided.

Well known for wrinkly/destroyed jeans.

Aimed at the pre-teen to early teen population.
I got this tee shirt at Hollister the other day.

A company that sells surfer themed clothing. To all of the people that say, "people who wear Hollister have probably never been to a beach before, I'm a real surfer" Listen, their is no such thing as a "real" surfer. If you surf a lot, your a surfer. Now if you shop at Hollister, and you surf then that doesn't make you any less of a surfer. Hell, I can shop at Wal-mart and surf and still be a surfer. People are stupid fucks. Thinking that only real surfers wear hurley, billabong, and volcom. HA! They have a logo or brand stamped on their clothes too. As long as I still have the skills on the board, who gives a fuck where I stop at. Just take some time to think about that, and you'll see what I mean. Dumb asses.
(Guy wearing Hurley)- Hey kook, your not a surfer. Your wearing hollister.

(Guy wearing Hollister)- Well, bring out your board and ride those waves, and then we'll see who's the real surfer.

(Guy wearing Hurley)- I don't have a board.

(Guy wearing Hollister)- Exactly.
