Abercrombie & Fitch – How the ANF Co. brands utilize Live by Fuel Cycle to stay connected to customers

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. is a global specialty retailer of apparel and accessories for men, women, teens and kids through its brands – Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister, Gilly Hicks and abercrombie kids. A&F Co. is focused on keeping its customers at the center of everything it does – and to help achieve that goal, the company’s Global Customer Insights team has utilized Fuel Cycle research communities to garner additional insights into customers’ mindsets, behaviors, and preferences. Their most impactful projects involve a combination of primary survey data from their community and in-person focus groups or immersions. But when the COVID-19 pandemic struck in early 2020, the organization needed a new course of action to reach customers in-person, virtually.
