Anthropologie is a home and wellness store that President Dick Hayne founded. When Hayne moved to the suburbs of Philadelphia, he noticed a lack of shopping options available for his niche and the niche of his friends. He wanted a store that allowed her to dive into his creative side and build a lifestyle brand that catered to women 30-45 years in age. Majoring in Anthropology, Haynes named his brand after his major and opened his doors in 1992 in Wayne, Pennsylvania. Today he has over 200 stores nationwide.
Anthropologie offers a wide range of products, including women’s apparel, intimates, home furniture, decor, beauty, and gifts. They cater to lifestyles that center around soft and delicate; boho chic; effortless cool; elegant classic; and modern sporty.
