PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Urban Outfitters, Inc. (Nasdaq:URBN), a leading lifestyle specialty retail company operating under the Anthropologie, Free People, BHLDN, Terrain and Urban Outfitters brands, today announced record net sales for the two months ended December 31, 2011.

"We are pleased to announce an 11% increase in our holiday sales," said Glen T. Senk, Chief Executive Officer.

Comparable retail segment net sales were flat while comparable store net sales decreased 4%. Direct-to-consumer comparable net sales rose 15% for the period and wholesale segment net sales increased 11%.
