10th November 2022 | Jack Oliver

Abercrombie and Fitch is to make its Scottish debut on Edinburgh’s upmarket retail thoroughfare, George Street.

The American fashion brand has signed a five-year lease on the 6,326 sq ft former Jack Wills unit, which comprises two floors. A rent rising to £171,000 per annum has been agreed.

The unit at 65 George Street, was let by Savills on behalf of Patrizia.

Stuart Moncur, head of national retail at Savills, said: “George Street continues to be one of Edinburgh’s premier retailing destinations providing Abercrombie & 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.”

Savills and Ewan Mackay Property Consultants advised Patrizia, while AFH Stores UK was advised by Cushman and Wakefield.
