National retailer Urban Outfitters is in negotiations to open a store at Central and Cooper.
Andy Ashby, reporting for the Memphis Business Journal:
The Philadelphia-based retail company, which operates the Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Free People and Terrain store brands, is negotiating to lease a former antique mall building at the northeast corner of Central and Cooper, according to numerous real estate sources.
This would be the second Urban Outfitters-branded store in the state. Urban Outfitters opened a 12,000-square-foot store in The Gulch, a trendy part of Nashville, in 2009. It opened a 9,000-square-foot Anthropologie store at The Shops of Saddle Creek in March.
What do you think about having a national chain move into the neighborhood?
