No. Hollister, like GAP, J.Crew or other like apparel retailers, design, create, and (normally through third party manufacturers) produce the clothes for their stores. Therefore, everything is done through in-house employees and contracts, eliminating the middleman.

Companies like PacSun, or Zumiez, who sell a wide variety of different brands, act as the distributer to their own stores. Thus, the retailer is either the middleman, or contracts with a regional or national distributer to deliver it's product after the respective corporate offices agree on a sales agreement.

Your best bet is to find "factory out-let" stores, because, Hollister is it's own distributer.
