Most noted for their focus on funky fashion, Urban Outfitters originated in Philadelphia and has now arrived in College Town. The spacious store opened in January and let me say that you don't just shop it - you experience it! There is something for everyone. How much better does it get than walking in and seeing a vintage camper that is a coffee station. There is also a charging station featuring tables and chairs for shoppers to relax, recharge and take it all in. In addition to contemporary clothing items, the women's section has bags, shoes and accessories. Brands include, but aren't limited to Obey, BDG Jeans, Reformation, YAYA and a huge selection of Urban Renewal items. The men's section is stocked equally well and features essential T's, hats, shirts, Levis and shoes. Just a few of the brands include Stussy, Obey, Converse and Van's. For the sock lover, there is ample selection that ranges from colorful to wild and will have everyone looking through this display.
In addition to clothes you are drawn to the fun and funky assortment of gifts, novelties and items for home. There is also photo booth and kiosk which sells Insta Mini 8 cameras. Make sure you check out the music section too. It is complete with albums ranging from retro to rap and vintage reproduction Crosby Record Players in an array of colors that look party ready. You'll also find candles, pillows, lamps, posters and books. At any age you can definitely add a little edge to your fashion sense and have some fun shopping with price points that won't break the budget. Be sure to stop by on the first Friday of each month when UO invites local artisans to set up and sell in the marketplace just outside the store and has live music.
Urban Outfitters is located in College Town at 717 South Woodward Street
