Forever 21 comes to Hong Kong

Forever 21 to open in Hong Kong Causeway Bay - Butterboom
By Butterboom Writers  /  July 15, 2011

In case you hadn’t heard, the Korean-owned American brand is finally gracing Hong Kong with its presence, and we have all the details.

For those unfamiliar with Forever 21, think H&M with an even higher stock turnover and you’re pretty much there. This is fashion so fast it barely stops for breath – the latest trends made accessible but at prices that’ll have your bank balance breathing a sigh of relief. Cute, colourful and cheap – what’s not to love?!

Forever 21 to open in Hong Kong Causeway Bay - Butterboom

Forever 21 will open its flagship Hong Kong store in the six-storey Capitol Centre in Causeway Bay (currently home to Giordano and Watsons). This prime piece of retail space will set them back HK$11 million a month, double Giordano’s current rent. According to SCMP (via Retail In Asia), this means they will have to sell four or five items of clothing at an average price of HK$300 every minute in order to turn over a reasonable profit – that’s at least 6667 items a day!

If all goes well, we imagine that Forever 21 will roll out further branches around the city, in the style of similar foreign fast-fashion labels (like H&M, Bershka and Cotton On) that have made it to our shores.

    I heard it was meant to open this summer (2011) but the deal didn’t go through because of the high rent. Maybe they’ve renegotiated?

  • Graidan

    The Giordano is still there (though it says it should be closing within a week) so no, this hasn’t opened yet. All the other shops in the center has vacated though (including Japan Home Store, Cafe de Coral, Watsons… all gone…)

    Ok – someone must have insider knowledge. HK is a small place people…search your resources, there must be someone with links to the PR/Marketing firm that are organising the opening! I want access to F21 BEFORE XMAS!!!!
