From the Racked Inbox: "Your report on the new Brooklyn Urban Outfitters missed the free tote giveaway—it's a reprise of the flyer they had floating around yesterday. I'm not sure Brooklyn has ever been so tragically stereotyped before. Nonetheless, I'm still happy to have a UO store a block from my apartment!" Let us just mention that it was a free tote with purchase, not something they were handing out to everyone upon entrance. Still, what a collectible.
