The company started with a small store in 1970. Situated in a Philadelphia row house several blocks from The University of Pennsylvania, the first Urban Outfitters revolutionized the fashion world by offering an eclectic and funky mix of merchandise for both home and wardrobe. Thirty-three years later, the Company has grown to manage three distinct brands providing fashion essentials for diverse customers: Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, and Free People.

Free People, the company's wholesale brand, designs and markets young women's clothing and opened its first store in Paramus, NJ in November 2002.
