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.
