Is it just me, or does anyone else think that Urban Outfitters is entirely overrated!? After work my friend and I took a stroll to Oxford Circus for a spot of retail therapy and visited Urban Outfitters. Now, I must admit that the visual merchandising and shop design is great, they have been very successful at creating a lifestyle shop with an edgy loft-style interior which is the reason why I think it has such a following. However I do not think that the stock (poor quality and too trend driven) match this nor does the lack of staff or inflated prices, particularly on the vintage goods which are probably picked up from Brick Lane for a fiver and sold for ten-fold.
What are your thoughts on Urban Outfitters?
