Urban Outfitters Buys Yard Sales Clothes!?
So, one of your favorite retailers may actually be cheating you out of money. The moderately pricey retail chain Urban Outfitters sends shoppers out to yard and rummage sales to purchase "cool" threads and then resells them at their stores as "vintage" clothes. That would be all fine and dandy if they did not mark them up as least $500 percent. The chain says that none of their other mass produced clothes come to their stores in this manner but it leaves some people with a bad taste in their mouths. We are wondering, do you think that this is actually theft. This is a HUGE markup on something that the store didn't even design itself.
