Abercrombie & Fitch extends lease on London store to 2021

Abercrombie & Fitch, the US fashion chain, has extended it lease on its central London store until 2021 and plans to open its first childrenswear store in the capital, according to a report in The Independent.

The annual rent at the Mayfair store, which opened on the corner of Savile Row in 2007, is thought to have more than doubled to over £2 million a year, The Independent said. It also indicated that the retailer may well have paid a premium to remove a break clause in the lease contract.

According to the report, the group has asked property company Capita Symonds, to locate a suitable site for a 10,000 sq ft Abercrombie Kids store.  Mayfair is thought to be the favoured location.

The group has stated that its statregy is to have just one  Abercrombie & Fitch store in central London but has opened 22 of branches of its Hollister fashion chain around the UK.
