The teens who hated Abercrombie are the adults shopping there now — and they can’t believe it either

Abercrombie & Fitch is opening at 3551 N. Southport Avenue in Chicago on December 17, 2021. It will be the city of Chicago’s only store as Water Tower Place has closed.

If you walk into an Abercrombie & Fitch, the first thing you’ll notice is this: It smells exactly the way you remember. It smells like a hot upperclassman leaning up against your locker, toying with his puka shell necklace, asking to “borrow” your algebra homework. It smells like popping the collar of not one but two polo shirts, worn one on top of the other. It smells like a ripped miniskirt that costs $98.

We should know more on who the national retailer will be taking over this space later this year.

Gearhead (formerly Uncle Dan’s Great Outdoors) closed abruptly on July 13, 2021 at 3551 N. Southport Avenue. The property space was listed for retail rent in the Spring of 2021 on LoopNet, and is currently listed with Seneca Real Estate.  Seneca has signed many retail leases along Southport Avenue, and their listing indicates that the space will be ready for rent starting September 1, 2021. Gearhead was outbid from an unknown national retailer on this space, and was ordered to vacate.
