By the end of the year, clothing brand Abercrombie & Fitch hopes to have a new kids-focused location at the opposite end of the Tysons Corner Center mall.
Staff at the current Abercrombie & Fitch near the Barnes & Noble said the chain is hoping to open a new “Abercrombie Kids” on the first floor by the Bloomingdale’s. Specifically, employees said the plan is to open the new store next to the American Girl doll store.
A manager at the massage parlor next to American Girl said she didn’t know anything about Abercrombie Kids moving into that space, but there are a handful of other vacant storefronts at that end of the mall.
The Abercrombie & Fitch brand dates back to 1892, but Abercrombie Kids started in 1998. The closest Abercrombie Kids store is in Arlington’s Pentagon City neighborhood at 1100 S. Hayes Street.
