If you're a metropolitan hipster, Urban Outfitters has your outfit. The firm's 200-plus namesake stores -- mainly in the US, but also in Canada and Europe -- offer casual clothes, accessories, housewares, and shoes. The retailer courts somewhat older women at about 180 Anthropologie shops. Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie sell via catalogs and e-commerce sites, too. The company also operates a bridal brand and garden center stores. The wholesale division makes, sells, and distributes clothing under the Leifsdottir and Free People labels for more than 75 of its own stores and about 1,400 department and specialty stores worldwide. Chairman Richard Hayne founded Urban Outfitters as The Free People's Store in 1970.
