If you google, “Hollister History” it’s pretty funny what comes up. There are several sites that talk about the “fake” Hollister history backstory Hollister made up.

Hollister’s fake history story:

The “fake” history that Hollister apparently tells its employees in new-employee orientation is the following:

There once was a man named John M. Hollister born at the end of the 19th century and loved to play and surf in Maine when he was a kid.

In 1915 he graduated Yale and instead of following a societally accepted path he set off for the West Indies and bought a rubber plantation, fell in love, had a kid, and then moved to California with his wife.

His kid, John Jr., grew up loving to surf just like his dad, and they started a surf shop in town around the early 1920s.


The really funny part is that Hollister has no about page with any type of founding story information on their website and they do not advertise any of this online in any official form.

BUT, here’s the kicker.

Their shirts, coats and other apparel items are branded with the year 1922, as if that was the year John Hollister started his surf shop in Cali.

It was started as the cheaper offshoot of Abercrombie in 2000. 2000 would just look less “cool” and “classic” printed on a shirt than 1922.

So they made up a fake history and then half-committed to it, but still print the year 1922 on their shirts.

Huh. Let me know your thoughts about this in the comments below.

Hollister’s history in actuality is really pretty simple.

It was started by the Abercrombie company in 2000 to offer a similar clothing style with slightly more laid back surfer vibes but at a lower cost than the original Abercrombie store.

Today it has grown to over 540 stores and collects feedback via the survey where it offers loyal customers a coupon in exchange for taking the survey.

    1. Das Verkauspersonal ist kompetent, freundlich und nicht aufdringlich.
      Ich wurde gut beraten und notfalls gibt es eine Umtauschfrist von 4 Wochen.
      Ich werde gerne wieder dort einkaufen.

  1. You” beat around the bush” too much to start the survey! I put in what I was supposed to put in and up comes this page. Too much! You will probable have a lot of people opt out for this survey, I know the people I’ve talked too don’t like it.

    1. I get the best deals at Hollister. They have great sales and free shipping most times online. I’ve never paid full price for anything from Hollister. If you catch the sales you do get deals. They just had 50% off entire store that was good in store or online plus free shipping, not to mention the points you get that give you cash off purchases. You need to learn how to shop.

  2. Always love going into the store, always have luck finding sweatshirts for my son but never any jeans or chinos. He’s a size 28/32 so I have to order them which I hate doing.

  3. Ive bought clothing here for my grandson for the past 3/4 years. The clothes are of the best quality I’ve found at the best prices. He wears 30\36 jeans. Very hard to find anywhere else. I order on line. Again best quality and he says best comfort of all other jeans. All the clothes laundry with no wrinkles and last forever. A great place to shop. Customer service has always been excellent. Thank you Hollister for making shopping fun and easy for me.

  4. I love the clothes from here and I love how they give good sales on clothes. The clothes are in great quality and the workers In the store are always so helpful and friendly.
