The Shoppes At Carlsbad Executes Lease With Forever 21
International Fashion Retailer to Open First Location in Carlsbad At The Lifestyle
Center This Year

CARLSBAD, Calif. – February 7, 2018 The Shoppes at Carlsbad is pleased to announce that Forever 21, one of the most recognized and largest independent fashion retailers in the world, will open its first location in Carlsbad at the newly transformed lifestyle center later this year. Forever 21 will occupy 24,000 square-feet on the lower level, between the recently opened Zara and Dave & Busters.

”The transformation of the lifestyle center was not only limited to the design and layout, but also to upgrading the quality of the merchandising mix, which Forever 21, The Cheesecake Factory, Zara, H&M and other recent openings help to do,” said Kyle Godat, General Manager of The Shoppes at Carlsbad. “We are excited to welcome Forever 21 to Carlsbad and we will continue to capitalize on the momentum from the renovation in order to attract additional new-to-market, high-volume retailers.”

Forever 21 is known for offering the hottest, most current fashion trends at a great value to customers. This model operates by keeping the store exciting with new merchandise brought in daily. Founded in 1984 and headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, the fashion retailer operates more than 815 stores in 57 countries.

The Shoppes at Carlsbad is nearing the completion of a comprehensive multi-phase
repositioning that has resulted in a steady increase in the flow of customer traffic. The center’s interior renovation concluded in late 2017, incorporating a coastal theme that reflects Carlsbad’s relaxed, beach-centric lifestyle and a new contemporary restaurant streetscape will be complete with the upcoming openings of Breakfast Republic, Wokcano and Grubby’s Poke & Fish Market.

New retail and dining concepts that have opened in recent months include H&M, Zara, Yard House, The Cheesecake Factory, Francesca’s, Pandora and locally-based GRACEDBYGRIT and Lucha Libre Taco Shop.
