NEW YORK — An Abercrombie & Fitch store in New York that was closed on Friday because of bed bugs reopened Thursday.

The store, in the South Street Seaport in Manhattan, was the second of two stores in the city that closed because of the critters.

Abercrombie's surf-themed Hollister store in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan reopened Saturday.

The New Albany, Ohio-based chain has requested guidance from city authorities on how to get rid of the pests.

The stores were closed while Abercrombie investigated the problem with its own testing.
