SuperGroup owned young fashion retailer and brand Superdry and Abercrombie & Fitch owned fashion chain Hollister are eyeing stores on famous shopping destination Regent Street in London.
Both chains are understood to be interested in the store currently occupied by National Geographic, which opened in 2008.
They are also both thought to be among those retailers vying to move in to the Aquascutum store on the street. Aquascutum is looking for alternative premises on more upmarket streets, such as Bond Street or Sloane Street.
Other retailers eyeing the Aquascutum store include Harvey Nichols, for its Beauty Bazaar concept, according to the Independent on Sunday.
Hollister has 19 stores across the UK but does not yet have a presence in central London, although it has a shop at Westfield London in White City. The retailer normally favours opening in shopping centres rather than high streets.
Superdry has one central London store, in Covent Garden.
