Forever 21 began construction today at West Acres Shopping Center in Fargo. The retail giant, who pride themselves on having the most current fashions at the greatest value, will occupy the former Walgreen’s space and adjoining spaces to make it almost 20,000 square feet - the largest store to open in West Acres since 1979.

Forever 21 is a phenomenon in the fashion world – providing shoppers with an unprecedented selection of today’s fashions - fast. Their merchandise is constantly changing and provides shoppers with the most current fashions mixed with various on-trend looks. The West Acres’ store will carry Forever 21’s women’s clothing and accessories as well as Heritage 1981®, a lifestyle brand for women; 21MEN®, a line of fresh, fast fashion for men of all ages;  and Love 21®, a contemporary line for women – all of which will be offered at an extremely affordable price point.

“We’re really looking forward to their opening this fall,” stated Alissa Sorum, Marketing Director at West Acres Shopping Center.  “Our customers have been asking for Forever 21, and now it’s coming.”  

The West Acres’ store will be the only Forever 21 store outside of the Twin Cities, in the tri-state area. The official opening date will be announced in early fall. Sorum states, “For now, all I can say is that when it opens, it will be with a bang.”
