FOREVER 21 SET TO OPEN A FASHION EMPORIUM AT INLAND CENTER
Forever 21, a favorite among trend savvy and value conscious shoppers alike, is opening a new location at Macerich®-owned Inland Center on Saturday, November 14.
The first 400 shoppers in line that day receive a store gift card, with randomly assigned values ranging up to $210. Similar openings of Forever 21 stores have brought throngs of shoppers, lining up early to be the first to shop the new store.
Forever 21 joins Macy’s and Sears as Inland Center’s anchors. Forever 21’s large format store covers over 94,000 square feet and is located on the center’s east side. This location will offer an unprecedented selection of great value fashions including women’s, men’s, accessories and shoes in a department store-like setting.
“Twenty times the size of its former Inland Center location, the new Forever 21 location brings an entirely new and vibrant element to our center,” said Arun Parmar, Property Manager, Inland Center. “Spanning two stories, the store will offer the trendy and value-oriented a virtual fashion playground, where customers can find just about anything on their stylish clothing, shoes and accessories wish list.”
Forever 21’s choice to build one of its largest stores to date at Inland Center is a big win for the San Bernardino community. “It speaks volumes about their confidence in and expectations in both our center and our marketplace,” said Randy Brant, Executive Vice President, Real Estate for Macerich. “Not only does their commitment add considerable value to our center, it delivers the dynamic shopping experience our shoppers find very appealing.”
The fashion retailer is rolling out larger format stores as it gains significant momentum in today’s economy-focused retail landscape, where consumers demand style at a more affordable price. “Our business is primed for significant growth this year and we look forward to bringing San Bernardino shoppers this new, highly energized Forever 21 retail experience,” said Larry Meyer, Forever 21 Executive Vice President.
