Forever 21 expands inside Westfield Countryside
I remember when Forever 21 opened inside Westfield Countryside mall in 2000. It was SWARMING with people who had never before seen this level of cheap-o fashion in such great supply. I still remember seeing a mean girl from my high school (who shall remain unnamed) barking at her mom to grab just about everything in the store.
It seemed massive and exciting back then, but years have passed and that Forever 21 has paled in comparison to bigger versions, including the more expansive sophisticated Forever XXI (Roman numerals, so you know it's good) at International Plaza.
It won't be a kid sister store much longer. If you walk through Westfield Countryside upstairs between the food court and JC Penney, you'll notice a HUGE section of stores walled off, destined to become Forever 21's new home. It even wraps around the corner where the old yogurt shop used to be.
A store clerk told me they're scheduled to open in the new location on June 30, and things will be on sale leading up to the switcheroo. I was mostly interested to know if the chandeliers and store fixtures were included since I'm getting ready to move into a new house, but she wasn't sure. If you see one of those big, twisty lamps on sale, totally let me know.
See you at the new location!
