Say it ain't so!
Retail giant Abercrombie & Fitch—which is known for hiring ridiculously naked good-looking guys as salesmen—is rebranding as a result of their declining sales in the last three years [via CBC].
Translation: No more shirtless guys at the store. Boo!
If you've visited an Abercrombie & Fitch store opening in the United States, you'd have loads of fun, because there are a bunch of half-naked dudes who invite you to go inside the store. And no one really complained!
According to Time.com, clerks now won't be called "models" but as "brand respresentatives." Meaning, the company won't hire dudes on the account of their good looks and ability to do bicep curls.
"Abercrombie & Fitch will recruit and hire the best associates whose focus will be on offering our customers an excellent in-store shopping experience. We will not tolerate discrimination based on body type or physical attractiveness and will not tolerate discrimination in hiring based on any category protected under the law," the brand said in a statement.
So what would A&F shops look like in the future? The company said they just plan to "adjust scent, lighting, music and [add] trees to ensure a more pleasurable shopping experience."
To which we say, "Aanhin namin yung trees?!" #BringBackTheBoys
