Forever 21, a trendy clothing store at Westfarms mall, is expanding into a larger space, which will open Aug. 17, according to a release from the mall.
The store will nearly triple its size to 22,500 square feet when it opens Saturday, leaving its upstairs location for a new lower level spot next to Macy's.
Mall management cites demand for the store's expansion.
“Anytime we see a retailer request additional space to grow its store at Westfarms it’s a testament to the store’s popularity in the market,” says Westfarms General Manager Kevin Keenan. “Forever 21 has created a unique formula for our fashion forward shoppers – style and affordability all rolled into one.”
To celebrate its opening, Forever 21 will give the first 200 shoppers in line at 10 a.m. a free gift card that could be valued up to $210 and a chance to win one of the store's fall outfits valued at $100, while supplies last.
