Hello lovely collegiate Rattlers! Are you a fan of fashionable jeans and unique tops? Are you tired of shopping at the same stores time after time? Well you are in luck because Urban Outfitters Store on Tour is coming to Tallahassee from Monday, October 17th to Thursday, October 20th, 2011. For the first time ever, Urban Outfitters Store on Tour will invade Tallahassee by storm, bringing their merchandise in a complete mobile store.
Urban Outfitters is a retail company that offers a wide variety of fashion merchandise. The store’s ability to offer a vintage style is what makes this retailer stand out. The clothing store offers men’s and women’s apparel. There is a range of shoes and accessories are presented as well. Also, apartment merchandise items like shower curtains, rugs, and lamps are offered here.
The store will be traveling to four different cities across the Southeast in the month of October. Urban Outfitters is touring cities including, Tallahassee, FL,Columbia, SC, Athens, GA, and Knoxville, TN.
The purpose of the tour is to bring Urban Outfitters to cities that do not have the shop."The basic concept for the Store on Tour container was to leverage the intrinsic qualities of a used shipping container—which is designed and engineered to travel—as a protective outer shell, unfolding to reveal a fully re-imagined, yet still utilitarian Urban Outfitters store," says Senior Manager of Store Design, Jeremiah Bailey.
This is a way to deliver the Urban Outfitters experience to cities that do not have the full-fledged Urban Outfitters store. “The physical structure of the Urban Outfitters Store on Tour is a well-traveled, rusty shipping container stripped down, transformed and given a new life,” says Andie Cusick, the Senior Public Relations Manger.The clothing store is built out of large pieces of wood to give it a tribal theme.
Urban Outfitters will be on East College Ave. and South Duval St. For more up to date information on the tour, follow @UOtour on twitter.
