Think of it as Pottery Barn for Millennials – plus clothing. How serious is this effort? Very. Executives from parent company Urban Outfitters Inc. last month said the nameplate will cut apparel from 71% of the assortment to 53% to blow out its home assortment, which now accounts for just 17% of sales. The company is also preparing to roll out new larger format stores, which at 30 ...
