London’s first Urban Outfitters store opens Thursday (Jan. 31) at the corner of Richmond and Oxford streets.
“Being a mostly collegiate city has really given London a reputation for education and cultural happenings, said Sarah Liesing, Urban Outfitters district manager for Ontario, in a news release. ”It has a great pull for musical and artistic exhibits,” she adds.
The two-storey new store boasts around 8,000 square feet of shopping space and will feature a glass and steel storefront designed to “illuminate the corner of Oxford Street while welcoming shoppers from the row.”
To celebrate the opening, a special party will be held on Thursday, Feb. 7 from 6 to 8 p.m. and will feature a performance by Canadian-based artists Richie Blackz and The Elwins and a headline performance by American Indie Pop Band Eternal Summers.
