A&F flagship: What recession?

The economy might be hurting Abercrombie & Fitch's overall sales, which were down 29% in March, but judging by the long line of people that literally wrapped around the block at its flagship on Fifth Avenue last week, you certainly wouldn't know it.

I figured there must have been a celeb-appearance promotion or at least a big sale happening inside, but according to sales associate at the front of the store -- who looked more like a bouncer at club -- "the line is always this long here."

If only A&F could draw crowds like this at the rest of its stores nationwide.
