In big retail news for the well-over-21 set, XXI Forever, the spinoff of Forever 21 geared toward slightly older gals, had its grand opening Saturday at Market and Stockton — in the former Virgin Megastore space. As we mentioned last month, the store is a fairly new format for the Forever 21 brand, and it's opening just a block away from their flagship at Powell Street.

SF Citizen snapped a photo of the line down the block for the grand opening event, which featured a giveaway of some kind. On Friday, when SFist snapped the photo above, the place was open and there was no line. Ah, the power of free stuff.

The 53,000-square-foot space features in-store boutiques or "rooms" such as the the "Silver Glitter Room," and the "Love Room," where intimate apparel is sold.
