Edinburgh to get Scotland's first shop from popular American clothing brand

An American retailer specialising in casual wear is coming to Edinburgh after a new five-year lease confirmed with Savills.

Abercrombie & Fitch will soon be moving into a retail slot at 65 George Street, previously occupied by Jack Wills shop.

Offering 6,326 sq ft of retail space, the unit is ideally located in the very heart of the capital's New Town and can be easily crowned the shopping hotspot of the city.

The deal was agreed upon between the US company - which also owns the well-known brand Hollister Co. - and the real estate services company Savills on behalf of Patrizia. The American company will pay a rent rising to £171,000 per annum.

Stuart Moncur, head of national retail at Savills, comments: "George Street continues to be one of Edinburgh's premier retailing destinations providing Abercombie & Fitch with an excellent location for its first store in Scotland. The attractive building is ideally suited to create a beautiful flagship store.

"George Street is a long-standing go-to address for aspirational retailers, and we are very pleased to welcome Abercrombie & Fitch, which will fit in seamlessly with other nearby brands, including Sweaty Betty, Lulu Lemon and All Saints."
