FREE PEOPLE COMPANY SPREADS BOHEMIAN VIBE.
"Free People—a new women’s clothing boutique at 63 Church St.—provides Square customers with another outlet for urban fashion, according to Store Manager Rachael M. Quinton-Medeiros.
Though there is already a Free People store in the Boston Prudential Center, the new branch hopes to target the region’s young “artist types” and college students, Quinton-Medeiros said.
While the store has the feel of a local business, Free People is part of a national brand that was started in 1970 and later changed its name to Urban Outfitters. Free People became a wholesale subsidiary of the company and sold apparel to small boutiques until current CEO Meg Hayne opened the first retail store in 2002."
