Forever 21 Stores

Each Forever21 store is unique when it comes to decoration, arrangement, size and location. I've been to many different Forever21 stores, and there are still some in certain cities I have yet to experience including the 20,000 sq. ft. store in Chino Hills. However, I think it would be safe to say that the best Forever 21 store would be located in Riverside, California. It happens to be the largest Forever 21 in the world with two complete floors of attire! Here's a bit of info from Raincross Square on the size of this Forever21:

Initially, the Riverside location will take up 90,000 sq. ft. on two levels of the 204,000 sq. ft., 3-story store, which opened in 1957 as Harris'. Future plans call for possible expansion into some of the third floor, likely making it one of the largest stores in the chain. What will eventually become of the unused portions of the building -- including a basement -- remain unknown.

After experiencing a two-story Forever 21, I was a bit overwhelmed but completely satisfied. It was definitely the most organized and spacious Forever21 I have been to. However, I think a third floor might be a little too much. I'm the type of person who likes to look at everything! I easily spent about an hour on each floor (possibly more) with my best friend when we went. Needless to say, I was exhausted by the time we finished.

Although the Riverside location was lovely, I think the store at the Irvine Spectrum was much more beautiful because of all the decorations, shelves, mirrors, etc. The Riverside location is more of a very enormous department store which is a plus, but there's just something about the stores when they're beautified in such a way where it captivates every female who walks in. I know there are more than just the Irvine location that have this look, I just used this one as an example since I recently visited it and took some pictures (sorry for the low quality).

I love seeing all their products set up the way they are in these pictures. It makes all the jewelry, hats, scarves and other accessories look so much more appealing.

So with that, which Forever21 stores are your favorite and why? Share with us and post some pictures if you'd like!

I've only been to one Forever 21 store and that was one close to Calgary in Canada while I was visiting a friend. They did have wonderful decoration and the mirrors with the jewelry and other accesories.

I have only been to 2 different locations: Mall of America in Minnesota and the downtown Chicago location. Chicago trumps MOA hands down. Larger, well organized, much better experience. MOA is a train wreck. You have to dig to find anything and it's a nightmare.

But online shopping at Forever21 is my favorite. I've basically just put it in my monthly budget.

It seems that a lot of Forever 21 stores are over crowded. It creates such a stressful shopping experience! lol

Online Shopping is a good way to go, except you can't really try anything on. Still, it works a lot of the time :)
