Shopping: Forever 21 To Open A London Store

I heard some exciting news this morning! Stylish American fashion chain Forever 21 are set to open a UK store in our fashion capital.

Opening a store on London’s Oxford Street, the brand is set to rival High Street stores such as H&M, Primark, and even shoppers favorite Topshop. I have only been to America on two occasions, but each time I have always visited Forever 21 and have been majorly impressed with the store on both visits. It kind of reminds me of H&M, but somehow a bit easier to shop, and what always sticks in my mind is Forever 21’s fabulous accessory department. I have a rather large collection of necklaces, earrings and bracelets from my visits to the store, each bought for no more than £3 (in English money), and each piece absolutely beautiful. There are currently 460 Forever 21 stores spread across the USA and Puerto Rico, but I can’t help thinking- why wait until now to branch into the UK?

Crowds gather when Forever 21 opened it's Japan store

The sad news is there is no sign of them opening a North West store anytime soon, but it just gives me yet another reason to keep dashing down to London!

    I’ve been hearing such mixed reviews about the new UK site but I’ll still go check the store out!

    Oh good, I was so excited when I heard they were coming to the UK but so puzzled when they didn’t mention any plans for London. It is the fashion capital of the world, people!! Well, I guess I can look forward to that then, thank you for the news!

    I’ve pretty much avoided all of the F21 stuff, mostly because I know theres not much chance of me going to Birmingham (or London) anytime soon! I hadn’t realised for some reason that they had launched a UK site – this could be dangerous 🙂
