Urban Outfitters is a clothing company that originally was named "The Free People's Store" in Philadelphia in 1970. The store focused on clothing and accessories that were very inexpensive or free. Now, Urban Outfitters has over 140 stores around the world and has become much more pricey. If you can't get enough of the Urban Outfitters style, but don't know how you feel about their prices, you can still own the clothing. Even if you don't have an Urban Outfitters location near you, it's still possible to score the clothing at low prices.
