Chicago Outlet Store Review: Urban Outfitters Surplus Store
Chicago is the home of the only Urban Outfitters Surplus Store in the country. Every day, Urban Outfitters store managers pull unsold merchandise off the floor, put it in a box, and send it to 2352 N. Clark Street (between Belden and Fullerton) in Lincoln Park.
The surplus store has a great selection of men’s and women’s clothes, shoes, and accessories. When I went, there was a huge selection of iPad covers, letterman’s jackets, and ballet flats. It’s all the fun stuff that Urban Outfitters is known for at low prices: $9.99 for t-shirts, $19.99 for jeans, $49.99 for wool and leather jackets. Just how good is it? Look at the tag on the Ramones poster I bought:Where: Urban Outfitters Surplus Store, 2352 N. Clark Chicago, (773) 549-1711
Also the Surplus Store generally has sales at the same time that regular Urban Outfitters have sales. So when you get an email about a sale (from Urban Outfitters) check with the Surplus Store to see if they’re having a sale. If you like their merchandise this is the type of store you want to stop in anytime you’re in the area.
