Last Friday, I got the opportunity to check out Forever 21’s latest and greatest retail shop on the high retail traffic and most expensive street in the world, New York’s 5th Ave. The 30,000 + square foot store has 6 retail floors brimming with affordable fashions from the wide assortment of collections including Heritage 1981®, Love 21® and 21Men™.
Members of the press were invited to check out the store the day before it opened to the public and were treated to a wonderful breakfast, $55 gift cards to shop, and a year long 10% discount. Needless to day, after helping myself to a plate of delicious french toast that was dipped and grilled to perfection right in front of my face, fresh squeezed orange juice, a chocolate croissant, and some fresh fruit, I got to shopping!
If you’ve ever been to Forever 21, you know the deal. There’s a healthy selection of basics, trend pieces and a few show stoppers, and getting through it all can be quite the task. I loaded up my arms and shopping bags and headed to the fitting rooms no fewer than 4 times. Thankfully the staff was very helpful with helping me find the sizes I needed, and reaching items that were beyond my grasp.
The inclusion of an affordable retailer on 5th avenue is bound to be a huge success with the amount of foot traffic the avenue receives from both new yorkers and tourists. If you’re in town, or just shopping on a budget, pay it a visit at 693 Fifth Ave.
