Under Armour Inc. opened its second retail door last week in Aurora, Ill., as the active brand hits a half-year of testing the direct-to-consumer concept.
After bowing its first 3,750-square-foot unit in November in the Westfield Mall in Annapolis, Md. (near its Baltimore headquarters), Under Armour opened a 6,000-square-foot shop in Fox Valley Mall in the Chicago suburb of Aurora to see how different weather and a slightly larger store would affect retail sales, according to Chris Hufnagel, Under Armour senior retail director.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
