A little of our backstory: owner Bruce Uzelman has been in the retail business for many years, successfully running franchised stores. He truly enjoys finding and bringing interesting products to his long-time customers, and has a knack for keeping the products in his store relevant to the ever changing trends of today (perhaps with a little help from his managers Amanda and Jamie!). Eventually Bruce decided it was time for something new, and in April of 2015, he did just that – created something totally unique.
Our concept is simple – take the general stores of yore, and the dollar stores of the present, and bring them together in a new and innovative way. Enter: Urban General. Since Urban General was created, it has gained a substantial internet following on its social media pages (Facebook and Instagram particularly), probably due to our fun and lighthearted content and regular contests. One thing was constant – our followers often asked if we offered online shopping. At long last, we are ecstatic to say: yes!
What we have strived to bring to you is a lifestyle. We hope you enjoy shopping with us!
All our best,
Bruce, Amanda & Jamie
