    American outfitter Abercrombie & Fitch is considering making Glasgow the location for only its third European store.

    Leading property sources have told The Herald that the fashion retailer has been checking out the possibility of opening at the former Borders store on Glasgow’s Buchanan Street. London’s Savile Row is the only other UK site.
    It would be the biggest coup for Scotland’s leading retail thoroughfare since IT giant Apple opened its first store north of the border on Buchanan Street almost three years ago.
    Last night a spokesman for Abercrombie & Fitch said: “We can’t confirm or deny we’ve been looking at that particular site. We don’t go public with real estate details until the deal is done.
    “What I can say is that we’re looking at a range of fantastic locations in many major cities across Europe for future Abercrombie & Fitch flagship stores.”
    The A-listed landmark property in Glasgow has lain vacant since Borders wound up at Christmas, although fashion retailer All Saints has taken the ground floor, which will become its largest outlet to date in the UK. Rent is reputedly £1.5 million-a-year for the property, owned by British Virgin Islands-based Dempsey Assets.
    It is understood Abercrombie & Fitch executives have been checking whether the layout on the upper floors of the store would suit the company’s distinctive in-store branding.
    A property source said: “It’s been an open secret for some time Abercrombie & Fitch have been looking at a move into Glasgow. They’ve now been in touch with a number of agencies about a move here and have been exploring the potential for the rest of the old Borders store not being used by All Saints.”
    If the move goes ahead, it would be only the fourth Abercrombie & Fitch store outside the US and Canada, the others being in London, Milan, and Tokyo. The company’s subsidiary brand ,Hollister Co, is to open a shop in Glasgow’s Buchanan Galleries this year, and plans to open a second at Braehead. It is also planning another outlet in Aberdeen in the near future.
    Abercrombie & Fitch is also understood to be attempting to secure further locations in Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Denmark and Sweden, while preliminary talks about opening a store in Dublin have also been held.
    The company’s store design features white moulding and black louvres on the exterior, with huge images on the back wall confronting shoppers the moment they step inside.
    Interiors are highlighted with dim ceiling-lights and spot lighting, while there is also the lingering scent of Fierce, an Abercrombie & Fitch fragrance, which is automatically sprayed from black boxes containing it.
    Glasgow Chamber of Commerce chief executive Stuart Patrick said: “Abercrombie & Fitch is a hot name in fashion. To have this brand coming to the heart of Glasgow would be yet more proof of the ever-growing attraction of our city centre as a style location.”

    Ich freu mich. Bin nämlich regelmäßiger Gast in Glasgow.

    Erst das Old-Firm-Derby (natürlich in der Rangerskurve) und dann noch schön in der Stadt einen Trinken gehen.
