Five Reason To Get Excited About Forever 21 Opening In Canal Walk

forever21

I have been a fan of the colourful fast fashion you get at forever 21 for a long time but unfortunately I could only get excited from a far as they were only overseas. Now we have one opening at the end of the year in Canal Walk and this is why I am excited!

NO MORE CRAZY SHIPPING AND CUSTOM FEES:

This is probably something a lot of you can related to, the awesome feeling of getting a package from your favorite overseas shop (even if you paid $50 shipping) to be told you need to pay an extra R500-R1000… Bubble burst…
Even if the prices are slightly higher than overseas its still a bargain considering how much customs fees are and you have the bonus of not having to wait for months for your package to arrive!

CHOICES!:

I love having more choices when I go shopping. It used to be like two shops that you can go to to find something but now there are so many mmore choices and it seems like Forever 21 will have a lot of awesome goodies!

TRENDY FASHION:

I am definitely a fashion freak so I love staying on top of the trends and with a shop like Forever 21 you know they will have the latest and greatest of what is going on in the fashion world at the moment at way more affordable prices.

CAPE TOWN FIRST:

We rarely get something first for some reason so I am so happy that Forever 21 will have its first home in South Africa in Canal Walk. I know we have the mountain and the ocean but sometimes we need a shop that no one has as well :P :P

BRING THE WORLD TOGETHER:

The world is almost becoming smaller but in some ways that is good. Now I can also have a Forever 21 Haul on youtube or watch one and get excited. I love how we arent separated by borders in the online world and now its spilling over into the real world.I am pretty sure my first summer Forever 21 haul will be epic so definitely keep a watch out for that!

    That is some awesome news but excuse me while I hahaha a bit to myself… Living Port Elizabeth (as I do) means getting all the cool shops ages after the open in Johannesburg or Cape Town if at all. So that import tax might actually almost equal the plane tickets to the bigger cities for us peeps living here. So sad. But online shopping is getting there in South Africa and I’m happy about that :) Being from Stickholm (Sweden) I’m missing all the shopping there even cheaper brands like H&M – how come they still haven’t opened up a shop in SA when they are in like every other country in the world (exaggerating a bit I know)?
    Anyway looking forward to having a Forever 21 in the country :)

    WOW look at Sofie from Stikholm, is that close to Stockholm in Sweden?

    Surely if you are from Stockholm you should know how to spell the name of you own country…or could it be that Sophie is simply not from Stockhom at all??!!

      “o” and “i” are next to each other on the keyboard, it was probably an innocent slip of the finger. :)
