The former Apple Records building where the Beatles sang for the last time could soon be home to an Abercrombie store.Abercrombie wants to open a children’s outlet at London’s 3 Savile Row, which is officially listed as a historical preservation site, Bloomberg News reported

The building houses the Beatles’ former label, Apple Records. It’s also where the band performed together for the last time in 1969. 

Local authorities recommended Abercrombie’s proposal, despite protests from retailers in the area. 

“The council received objections stating the store would have ‘an unacceptable impact on the character and function of Savile Row, inappropriate congregation of crowds on the street outside, increased footfall will lead to safety issues on the highway, and potential noise and disturbance to surrounding properties,'” according to Bloomberg. 

Abercrombie is best-known for its shirtless models, techno music and preppy clientele. The retailer has been especially successful in the U.K. and Europe.
