Looking for some $80 jeans but just can’t seem to find any downtown? Don’t fret. Urban Outfitters is opening a store at 155 E. Clayton Street, next to down the block from Wuxtry Records, according to the Athens-Clarke County Planning Department. The storefront is currently The Red Zone, which sells University of Georgia-branded apparel.

Because the location is in a historic district, the ACC Historic Preservation Commission is scheduled to vote on approving plans for “material changes, replacement of the doors and storefront, and new signage” next month, planners say.
