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.

The parcel on West Wolfram is one of the last vacant sites in an area that has been made over from industrial to residential in recent decades.
The vacant parcel, most recently used by a plant nursery, was owned by an arm of Alto Manufacturing, a metal fabrication company on Ashland Avenue just east of the lots. In September, a legal entity headed by Giles and Mao Mei, a developer and builder based in Bridgeport, bought the lots for $4.72 million, according to the Cook County Recorder of Deeds.
