HAMBURG, Germany — While other young fashion chains may be stepping on the brakes, Urban Outfitters Inc. has instead stepped up its European expansion.
Since setting up in London a little more than a decade ago, the American specialty retailer has built up an almost $100 million business on this side of the Atlantic, according to Hugh Wahla, managing director of Urban Outfitters Europe. The 12,000-square-foot, two-floor store on Hamburg’s well-shopped Gansemarkt is the chain’s fifth European store to open this year, and brings the number of European doors to 17 — 18 when counting the brand’s online store.
