BY Dan Berthiaume

New Albany, Ohio – Abercrombie & Fitch is reportedly rolling out charging stations for mobile phones and tablets in its stores. According to TheStreet, there are currently two Abercrombie & Fitch stores with mobile charging stations installed, and the retailer plans to roll out the stations at several more Abercrombie and Hollister stores by the end of the year.

Abercrombie is also providing lockers so customers can leave their mobile devices to charge without worrying about them being stolen. Starbucks announced it would roll out electrified Powermat charging spots on June 11, and Urban Outfitters and Apple have also both piloted mobile charging stations in select stores.
