For those of you who missed it Forever 21 opened their new Shibuya flagship store on Thursday 23 December. The new flagship store is the fifth for Forever 21 in Japan (with more to follow) and is more than 4,000sqm, even larger than the Ginza Matsuzakaya's 3,000sqm store and now the largest F21 store in Asia…so far. Spread out over six floors; 1-4 are for the ladies, 5 for men, women & kids and floor number 6 is for accessories including shoes and intimates.
The Shibuya Forever 21 store took over (with lots of renovations) from HMV which vacated the location this past summer. Originally planned to open in January, the store was able to open earlier as renovations were completed ahead of schedule.
What’s next for Forever 21? A sixth store in Fukuoka is set to open by 2012, followed by stores in Osaka, Nagoya and Kyoto. Six down and only ninety-four more stores in Japan left to open. Forever 21 plans on being in Japan for…well, forever.
