Today, I went to Hollister with my grandmother. She immediately started yelling about the music being too loud, and ordered the staff to "shut the damn thing off". She was yelling at a bunch of mannequins. FML

1- It's dark in there because they don't want anyone to see the shit that they've designed until they've already paid for it.

I work at Abercombie, for you that don't know, Hollister and Abercombie are by the same company. Yes, it's dark and loud! Lol and we get a lot of complaints from the elderly. It's to bad we can't do anything about it. I wish we could help and make it a better experience for our customers, it makes me feel bad sometimes.

Its psycological. Its dark for a reason, same reason its dark in most bars. So u are faster to make a decision..... about the ugly things ur bringing home.

It is not a good place to take your grandmother, duh! I used to shop there when I was younger and I was still smart enough to know where older people do not need to go. On another note I think it is totally cute that she gave those mannequin an ear full.

@75 - Anyone who cares enough to know how to spell Abercrombie has to actually copy it off one of their god-awful shirts in order to figure it out. Anyone smart enough to know how to spell Abercrombie off the top of their head is also smart enough to not give a shit about it.

I don't see why the downvotes for #75. Once could have been unintentional but if she's working there, she should at least know how to spell it correctly. I've worked there in the past and elder customers used to ask us to turn the music down or to stop making our stores smell so horrible but as an employee I was miserable as well, listening to the same CD on repeat for an entire "season." I did love the smell though so that never really bothered me. Whenever I was assigned to "spr

#46- You're right, the quality of the fabric is cheap. One can probably get better quality clothing shopping at Target for less $$

@ #65: You could turn down the music and turn up the lights... It's within your power. Trust me. I used to work retail. Management tends to back off if you all band together and make changes for the sake of your mental health. Not to mention that loud music and a dark environment will destroy your hearing and sight, respectively.

It's alright OP. Sometimes, people that are elderly think that whenever they have a disadvantage or trouble with someone. They think we are purposely disrespecting them.

You obviously haven't seen mannequins flipping people off. They're sneaky about it, but I've seen them. You just have to stare at them and never take your eyes away; it took almost two days for me to see them move.

That reminds me of my mom. She works in retail and is always accidentally greeting the mannequins or asking them if they need assistance.

She works the closing shift, so she doesn't set them up, but she should know where the mannequins are since she works there. XD

Lol I feel bad for ur mom that's the stress of retail the toll it takes on a person. I know cause I work in retail but luckily no mannequins

Older people get confused sometimes, I hope your Gran is just confused and she doesn't have a serious illness like Alzheimer's...

I think a visit to Hollister could elicit that reaction in anyone, regardless of their age. The place is absurd.

I don't think you're using the proper term there. Alzheimer's doesn't cause folks to think Mannequins are people.
