Teen clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch Co has chosen the UK as the location of the first international store in its Gilly Hicks lingerie chain.

CEO Mike Jeffries told analysts on a conference call earlier this week that the shop will open in London on 27 November.

The Ohio-based company on Tuesday (16 November) booked a 29% hike in third quarter profit, helped by strong international sales and a good domestic performance across all its brands.
