What is Urban Outfitters?
Urban Outfitters is an American multinational clothing corporation founded by Richard Hayes, Judy Wicks and Scott Belair in 1970. The company operates in the UK, US, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands, Pakistan, Sweden and Spain. On March 2001, they reclassified shipping and handling revenue into net sales.
The company is a global retailer with a boutique approach, they are the biggest small retailer in the world. The people behind Urban Outfitters didn’t start it to make sense on paper and they certainly never thought they’d be writing something like a brand bio. Its inventory primarily consists of women's and men's fashion apparel, footwear, beauty and accessories, activewear and gear, and housewares.
In 2007, they received the National Preservation Honor Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation for their Corporate Office Campus located on the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. For the same campus, they also received the 2007 Global Award for Excellence from the Urban Land Institute. In March 2008, to introduce its new Terrain brand, the company entered the Philadelphia Flower Show and won the Alfred M. Campbell Award, the Conservation Award, People’s Choice Award and Best in Show.
