Bed Bug Hollister Infestation: Ignored Problem

Hollister in Soho is famed for how clean the store is to show of their range of exciting clothing — so the news of a Bed Bug infestation is not going down well with shoppers or workers. The store had to close yesterday so that these bedbugs could be eradicated — the funny thing is, Hollister supposedly knew about the problem three weeks ago and ignored it.

According to an article on Gothamist, one worker said that she found a bedbug and a shell on her clothes. If this is true then you will be scratching just thinking about it. Last Tuesday a Hollister employee found that she had been bitten, and when she borrowed an item of clothing from the store she found an exoskeleton on there — how big are these things, usually you cannot see them.

It was also reported that employees were still forced to work, even though there could be a bedbug infestation. A number of employees were covered in bites, but it is assumed that Hollister was more worried about losing money than the wellbeing of its staff that’s according to the NYMag article.

It is uncertain how many customers and employees came into contact with these bugs, but waiting so long could have made the problem much worse. The bed bug infestation could even affect other stores, we will have to wait and see what Hollister announces — if they do.
