    Because, really.. They aren't.

    Abercrombie and Fitch owns both of them.

    abercrombie kids is more for preteens.

    Hollister is targeted more toward High School.

    Abercrombie & Fitch is targeted for College.

    They also have a new brand called Ruehl No.925 targeted toward post-collegiates who can afford to pay 30% than A&F's prices.

    They are all owned by the same company, but they are technically not the same.

    We aren't allowed to wear Hollister at work because we compete against them. Plus they are like four or five spaces down.

    Well, the morons part it true, but abercrombie sounds like it could be a big clothing company name, like hollister. I've never heard of abercrombie before, although I did start wearing Hollister clothing this summer, so that would be why I didn't know.

    Hollister is a brand marketed to teens, that is owned by Abercrombie and Fitch. You can't one without hating the other.
