Before the game yesterday, I decided to stop in & check out the grand opening of Urban Thread. At Tuesday’s Collegiate Merchandising Association meeting, one of our members told us a little bit about the store & asked if she could put out flyers on the table. Immediately after she told us about the store, I knew I had to check this place out!
Urban Thread is a store filled with name brands such as Free People, Urban Outfitters & Wildfox Couture but at majorly discounted prices. She explained that all of the items in the store are either off-season items or catalog returns. I found a lot of great items & ended up walking away with a striped BDG crop top & a cozy pullover sweatshirt from Wildfox Couture in navy. Total price? Just under $40. Both of the items I picked were priced at $18.50. Although I am not sure how much the BDG crop top was originally, I found the same Wildfox Couture sweatshirt in a different color for $125 at shopthetrendboutique.com.
The store, at least at the moment, was a plain open space that was very well organized. They were not only organized by size but also by brand. You could also find shoes, handbag, bed spreads, & accessories. The staff was super friendly & helpful. Please keep in mind that all sales are final so make sure that you try everything on & really love it before buying it!
Interested in checking this place out for yourself? Urban Thread is located at 1318 N. Monroe St., just above Sakura Japanese Restaurant.
