As one of the most popular clothing brands for the youth in the world, Hollister was created to reflect the relaxed surf culture of the west coast in the U.S. The American lifestyle brand is geared towards young adults with graphic t-shirts, cardigans, loose sweaters, ripped jeans, and casual wear that can be worn in warm climates and relaxed environments, mainly in outdoor settings. The company is owned by Abercrombie & Fitch Co. and first opened its doors in 2000 with its first store at the Easton Town Center in Columbus, Ohio. Its headquarters are currently located in New Albany, Ohio. In 2008, Hollister was ranked the second most preferred clothing brand for teens on the West Coast in the U.S. by Piper Jaffray.
After the first Hollister store found success, additional stores opened in Westfield Topanga in Canoga Park, California, Oak Park Mall in Overland Park, Paramus Park in Paramus, New Jersey, and Mall of Georgia in Buford, Georgia. In 2006, the company began to expand in Toronto, Canada. The brand has continued to grow and expand into the U.K., Italy, Spain, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Sweden, Austria, and Ireland. Flagship stores have also begun to emerge with multiple floors of merchandise available in each building in New York City, London, and Munich.
Many of the Hollister products are named after popular Southern California beaches with items that are priced 20% lower than Abercrombie & Fitch to make it an affordable brand for teenagers to purchase. Body care is also sold through the brand with scented fragrances, lip gloss, lip balm, hair wax, mist, lotion, body wash, deodorant, and lip shine available in stores and online, including ASOS.com. Their lingerie line, Gilly Hicks, was released in 2008. Hollister is also known for selling alternative rock CDs in their stores.
Hollister stores are built to mimic a beach shack to fit within their Southern California theme and feature both men and women's sections. The exterior of each store features shutters, windows, brown pattern walls, and tiled roofs, which allow it to stand out amongst other retailers in a mall or outdoor shopping center. The stores are also known to have dim interior settings with surfboards lining the walls, palm trees in potted plants, worn rugs, and leather chairs where shoppers can lounge while browsing. Cots and benches are also placed in different areas of the store for additional seating options that blend in with the laid back decor. There are also automated spritzing systems installed in many of the stores, which release a scented Hollister Co. fragrance onto clothes and into the air throughout the day at timed intervals to allow customers to smell the inside of the store from outside. Two competitors of Hollister are Aeropostale and PacSun.

Although Hollister is considered a surfing clothing brand, the company claims that the name of the line is not connected to the California city and is more about the lifestyle of beach cities rather than the actual sport.
