I remember a few years ago when Abercrombie & Fitch first came to Cambridge, MA and invaded Harvard Square's refreshing landscape of independently-owned quaint coffee shops, foreign bookstores, and boutiques. It was harrowing and it signified the advent of much more commercially-owned corporate businesses in the area. I felt similar pangs of remorse when visiting my alma mater, University of Michigan, two years after I graduated and observing how they had shut down my old haunt-an artsy cafe to put up a Starbucks. To my consolation, the Urban Outfitters was still there.

So now comes word that Abercrombie, with their big flashy billboards of strong, scantilly clad Aryan looking dudes) was in negotiations to come to Israel with a local distributor.

"H&O will not begin to import Abercrombie & Fitch products to Israel this spring. There are no discussions ongoing between the parties regarding any business relationship, and Abercrombie & Fitch do not intend to initiate such discussions with H&O."

Yano added that: "Abercrombie & Fitch do not intend to do business with H&O nor do we plan to come to Israel anytime in the near future, and certainly not this spring."
