I require all our executives to read it

There is no better publication that I am aware of that is so accurate and on top of any news and developments in our industry. I personally recommend it to many people that want to know and understand more about our industry. For the most part, shop-eat-surf.com gets the stories first. As a matter of fact, I require all the executives in our company to read it.

Executive Edition is a must have
Executive Edition is a must have

Before Shop-Eat-Surf, there were two sites I paid for premium content on. One is Surfline, the other is the Wall Street Journal. One is about all things surf, the other, the best business content site in the world. Shop-eat-surf is the intersection of those two worlds. Shop-Eat-Surf provides everything from coverage of events, people, brands and trends. However, beyond the Executive Edition "wall" is more meaty analysis and interpretation of financial statements, business models and brand philosophies; why certain brands and companies are succeeding, where others aren't. The Executive Edition is a must have read if the business of surf and action sports are on your radar screen.

Abercrombie & Fitch executives provided some more details about the company’s ambitious international expansion plans for Hollister this week.

 

The company said it sees Hollister Europe as a major growth driver for Abercrombie & Fitch.

 

Currently, there are 29 Hollister stores in Europe in four countries.

 

In the future, Hollister Europe will grow to 185 stores in 15 countries, becoming a $1.5 billion business, the company estimates.

 

Additional company growth drivers include expanding Hollister in Asia and the Southern Hemisphere.

 

After struggling for a few years, Hollister found more solid footing in 2010.

 

Hollister sales grew 21% in 2010 to $1.6 billion after a 15% decline in 2009.
