Abercrombie & Fitch opens first Dutch store in Amsterdam

American retailer Abercrombie & Fitch opens its first Dutch store in Amsterdam the Netherlands today.

The store is located on the Leidsestraat, in the oldest department store building in Amsterdam where formerly Metz & Co. was located.

The young fashion label launched its first European flagship near London’s Saville Row four years ago, and last May opened a flagship store in France on Paris’ Champs-Elysées.

The company said it plans to open three more of its flagship Abercrombie & Fitch stores this year in Dusseldorf, Brussels and Singapore on top of the two new stores already opened in Paris and Madrid.

The company indicated in its most recent conference call it is planning to close 60 to 65 mediocre performing U.S. stores this year when the leases for the stores expire, but indicated it is only planning to add 45 new stores in Europe.
