Update: Allen Street Abercrombie & Fitch Closes Its Doors

Update: (January 7, 2016): 

After 15 years in State College, the Abercrombie & Fitch on South Allen Street closed its doors permanently over winter break.

The lease is $12,750 a month and is listed by Industrial-Commercial Realty LLC.

With the closing of Chili’sPhilly Pretzel, and now Abercrombie, South Allen is starting to look a little bare. At least we have Champs to look forward to in the coming months.


The lease sign posted in the window of the business was posted over winter break.

Original post (May 9, 2015):

It’s a sad day for South Allen Street.

The building that currently houses Abercrombie & Fitch is in search of a new tenant. According to the listing, the storefront is available for lease starting in December 2015. The lease is $12,750 a month and is listed by Industrial-Commercial Realty LLC.

Abercrombie opened its doors to moose lovers in 2000 and was the first store in the building. With 9,183 square feet available, there’s a whole host of possibilities to fill the space. The listing is on a national commercial real estate site, so perhaps another chain will open in its place.

A manager at the downtown location and national representatives would not comment on the situation. If you just enjoyed the store for the large pictures of half-naked people when you walked by, you won’t even miss them anymore. The rest of us will enjoy an Allen Street free of the brand-sensory smell that always exuded from its doors.
