Abercrombie & Fitch sue Clare fisherman over $36,000 fashion haul
Clare resident returns tens of thousands worth of Abercrombie clothes by court order
A Clare fisherman who had been running an illicit Abercrombie & Fitch store out of his home, selling imported goods, agreed in court Friday to return the clothing to the company in accordance with the 1996 Tradesmarks Act, the Evening Herald reports.
The makeshift importer, Max Kulczynski, originally from England, stated to the court that he had obtained the goods from a Hollister store in Vero Beach, Florida, through another person employed in the retail clothing business, and employed a separate company to ship the clothes to Ireland.
Kulczynski’s two-room store had been decorated to imitate the look of Hollister stores, which are owned by parent company Abercrombie & Fitch.
Gardai raided the store on May 18, finding 596 items worth about 30,000 euro altogether. 14 shoppers were inside the store when gardai entered under a search warrant, the Herald reports.
Abercrombie & Fitch did not pursue costs in the case, only asking for the return of the clothes, according to the company’s legal representation. Kulczynski agreed through his solicitor to return the goods.
A tightly controlled expansion of Abercrombie’s presence in Ireland will add a Dublin store later this year to their massively successful outpost in Dundrum shopping center, according to the Herald.
