Urban Outfitters Expands, Brings Jobs to Philly

Rivet's 2020 Denim Circularity report takes a deep dive into how the global denim industry is plotting its circular future amidst a worldwide pandemic.

Urban Outfitters is about to double its workforce in Pennsylvania with a $200 million expansion plan and 2,500 new jobs.

Philadelphia Lt. Governor Jim Cawley announced the project Monday at the 2013 International Economic Development Council Conference. The plan includes expanding the company headquarters at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and building a new east coast direct-to-consumer fulfillment center in Gap, Lancaster County, a statement from the Lt. Governor’s office said.

Catalog and Internet sales have grown dramatically in the last few years so the company is ready to add to its existing 2,400-strong Philadelphia workforce.

Richard A. Hayne, Chairman, President and CEO of Urban Outfitters said in a statement, “Our company has had a history of success in Pennsylvania and these projects will provide the additional infrastructure necessary to achieve our corporate growth objectives for years to come.”
