Urban Outfitters, Inc. is a publicly traded American company that owns and operates over 400 retail locations across five retail brands: Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Free People, Terrain, and BHLDN. Urban Outfitters originated as 'The Free People's Store' in 1970 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, focusing on 'funky' fashion and household products. Shortly thereafter the owner and now Chairman, Richard Hayne, changed the name to Urban Outfitters. The product line has evolved from vintage, bohemian, retro, hipster, ironically humorous, kitschy apparel and furniture to include luxury brands and several designer collaborations.
