I may be a little behind the times but I heard some great news today. (oh boy). Apparently, American budget fashion store, Forever 21 is to take up the retail space on Henry Street, that was formerly the Arnotts Project. The last I heard was that New Look were set to take over the site, but I was told at lunchtime today that actually Forever 21 will be the hottest new store in the city this year.
Due to open in the Autumn according to the Irish Times, I reckon it will be a massive pull to the Henry Street shopping area. I am very excited about it, F21 is a shop I always go to a hundred times when I’m in NY to stock up on as much as possible. I was actually wearing a dress from there at lunchtime when I was told, which is a little freaky!
Anyway, here’s to crossing our fingers that the Euro mark-up won’t be as high as it is in American Apparel!
EDIT: It’s open, see the photos here.
