Urban Outfitters, Inc., which owns Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, and Free People, recently opened a new distribution center in Raymore, Missouri, for its women’s subscription rental clothing service platform, Nuuly.

The 600,000-square-foot facility is Nuuly’s second-largest distribution and laundry facility and is expected to create 750 jobs and triple its active contractor base in the Kansas City area over the next five years. Therefore, the company is investing $60 million in two phases of work over five years.

Located at the Raymore Commerce Center, developed by VanTrust Real Estate, the new facility is a cutting-edge fulfillment center with full laundry and garment alteration capabilities that will allow the platform to optimize its services nationwide.

Since 1970, Urban Outfitters has encouraged customers to express themselves through their wardrobes and storage spaces. Accordingly, the company launched Nuuly in 2019, a platform that provides customers with an experience that gives them greater access to their favorite clothes and brands through monthly rental subscriptions.

The platform is especially targeted at Gen Z customers and is gaining popularity as a groundbreaking platform that offers a wide range of thousands of styles from hundreds of brands for special occasions to everyday life, from work to vacation, and all life occasions in between.
