We have trouble hanging on to luxury retailers, but when it comes to fast fashion, Minnesota is a magnet. Forever 21 is bringing its new lower price concept, F21 Red, to Shoppes at Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove. The store opens Saturday, July 12, with $10 gift cards for the first 100 in line. That's enough to buy five camisoles, with prices starting at $1.80.
The 17,000 square foot store will feature a greater selection of value-priced "trend staples" including $3.80 t-shirts and tank tops, $7.80 jeans and $5.80 leggings. F21 Red will offer select pieces of Forever 21 apparel plus items from the retailer's other brands including 21Men, Forever21+ for extended sizes, Forever 21 Girls, for young customers, Love & Beauty cosmetics as well as lingerie and shoes.
Shoppes at Arbor Lakes is the second location for F21 Red. The first opened this spring at South Gate in Los Angeles.
