Abercrombie & Fitch Co. Swells Pickup-Point Options

U.S. customers can now get their prescriptions, paper towels and packages from Abercrombie & Fitch at their local Walgreens.

Ohio-based Abercrombie & Fitch Co.­—the parent to its namesake brand, Abercrombie Kids, Hollister, Gilly Hicks and Social Tourist—has expanded its e-comm fulfillment capabilities by extending its pickup options for all its brands to approximately 12,000 partner locations nationwide. The participating companies in the deal include Walgreens, FedEx and Office Depot, which now offer the service in select stores.

Rather than have packages delivered to their home, online shoppers can now choose to fetch it at one of the partner stores. They will be notified that the package is ready through tracking updates and shipment notifications.

Previously their only option was to pick up packages at one of the company’s monobrand stores or curbside. They can also reserve in store or ship from the store.

“We take a lot of pride in meeting our customers where they are and strive to execute a seamless delivery experience. These new alternate pickup points are another great option for anyone seeking convenient, efficient and secure product delivery,” said Larry Grischow, executive vice president of supply chain and procurement at Abercrombie & Fitch Co.

Pickup orders are charged a $7 shipping and handling fee, the same as standard shipping, and generally take one to five business days to arrive.
