ABOUT FOREVER 21 CANADA
Fashion can be hard... but it shouldn't be hard on your wallet. That was the resounding idea behind the first Forever 21 store when it first opened its doors in 1984. Since then, Forever 21 has become a global clothing giant with almost 500 worldwide locations and annual revenue of over 3 billion dollars. Still maintaining its economical pricing, the retailer specializes in everyday fashions and accessories for men, women and girls.
A FAMILY BUSINESS
Forever 21 was started in 1984 by Do "Don" Won Chang and his wife Jin Sook Chang, recent immigrants to the United States from South Korea. Undeterred by possible bad luck, the couple opened the store in a building that had its three previous tenants close shop within the first year. The store featured styles similar to those popular in South Korea and targeted South Korean immigrant women in the LA area. Ringing in over $700k in revenue in its first year, it was quickly apparent that the store was a huge success, with an appeal that extended beyond the South Korean community.
Throughout the 90s and 2000s, the family-operated business continued to flourish. New locations opened all over North America and were eventually followed by locations all over the world. As Forever 21 gained momentum both at home and abroad, the retailer continued to widen their inventory to include new categories such as girls and plus sizes. These days, Forever 21 locations are enormous both in scope and in size. With some flagship stores exceeding 24,000 square feet, the sheer size and selection can be overwhelming.
To this day, the retailer is one of the largest privately owned companies in America, with competition like Old Navy and Garage. The Changs continue to run the business, with their two daughters playing leading roles alongside their parents.
