YONKERS, NY — February 23, 2021 — Forever 21 just opened its first store of 2021, and since the pandemic started, in Yonkers, NY! The new store is located in Cross County Mall—one of the country’s first open-air shopping centers and sits at the intersection of the New York State Thruway and the Cross County Parkway, where nearly a quarter of a million cars pass through each day.
The opening comes as the brand exits bankruptcy and at the tail end of the launch of two major campaign launches (their first Black History Month campaign & partnership & their largest Women’s History Month campaign and philanthropic effort)—signs of brighter & bolder business change coming from new CEO Daniel Kulle.
