Polaris Fashion Place, central Ohio’s premier shopping destination with more than 150 popular retail, dining and entertainment choices, will welcome a re-branded, new prototype Abercrombie & Fitch store in early 2017. This much-anticipated future addition is the first location of its kind in the United States.

“It is exciting for Polaris Fashion Place to be the launch site of Abercrombie & Fitch’s latest prototype store,” said Bruce Goldsberry, general manager at Polaris Fashion Place. “As Columbus’s most fashionable address, the center has long been a test market for nationally recognized brands and new retail concepts. As a result, we continue to exceed shopper expectations by providing them with the brands they seek and new experiences for them to enjoy.”

The debut of Abercrombie & Fitch at Polaris Fashion Place will herald a new direction for the brand with a new store aesthetic and updated merchandise selections. The brand’s new approach will attract loyal Abercrombie & Fitch shoppers, in addition to a new generation of customers, who will appreciate the casual luxury brand. The new concept store will be situated on the lower level near Madewell.

“We are looking forward to launching our first A&F prototype in Polaris, a great fashion destination right in our backyard, which will allow us to receive customer feedback firsthand,” said Fran Horowitz, President and Chief Merchandising Officer for Abercrombie & Fitch Co. “With the strong performance we are seeing with our new Hollister prototype, the updated A&F store will also deliver a differentiated and elevated experience for customers, and will highlight how we are evolving as a brand.”
