The company said in a statement that it expects to open the center with 200 initial hires by Aug. 1. Company officials say they expect to create 400 jobs within the next five years.
Urban Outfitters contact center Director Bryan Whitney says, "The Columbia County location will play a significant role in Urban Outfitters' goal of building a unique work environment where we can assemble a team that believes in creating a compelling and distinct experience for our customers."
