Urban Outfitters, Inc., whose portfolio includes Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie and Free People, began operations at its new 600,000-square-foot fulfillment center for Nuuly, the company’s women’s clothing rental brand, in Raymore, MO. 

“The opening of URBN’s new facility is an exciting moment for the company, the Kansas City region and our state,” said Governor Mike Parson. “Missouri’s economic strengths continue to result in significant investments from world-class employers. We’re proud to see URBN beginning operations in Raymore and look forward to the lasting, positive impact it will provide for Missourians.”

URBN is investing $60 million in two phases of work over five years to build the second Nuuly fulfillment and laundry facility, which it expects will create 750 jobs over the next five years and triple its active subscriber base following a strong growth year.

“Nuuly has experienced unprecedented growth and momentum, and we are excited to expand our operations to the Kansas City region to support our next phase of growth,” said David Hayne, chief technology officer of URBN and president of Nuuly. “Opening our second U.S. fulfillment center will allow us to grow well into the future.”

Nuuly launched in 2019 as a subscription rental clothing service for women, offering “over 19,000 styles from more than 400 designer and contemporary brands, including Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie and Free People.”

The new facility, which also includes laundering and clothing alterations, is located in the Raymore Commerce Center, which VanTrust Real Estate developed.
