Well, we heard earlier this month that Urban Outfitters was thinking about joining us in Cooper Young, and we now hear that it’s official!
From Toby Sells for the Commercial Appeal:
Urban Outfitters will open a new store in Memphis at the corner of Central Avenue and Cooper Street, the “gateway” to the Cooper-Young neighborhood.
Workers from Gilluly & Associates are renovating the space now to make way for Urban Outfitter’s designers and builders. Ryan said the target opening date for the store is March 15, 2011.
Our previous post garnered quite a bit of feedback, all positive and welcoming like this one from Rachael Miller:
great idea! I love Urban Outfitters and if there was one in Cooper-Young I would go to it all the time; it would really become popular for teens and even adults. I think you should go for it I was talking to my friends about it today and it was all 100% yes!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Rachael!
