TOKYO — Forever 21 is about to open its first store in Japan, raising the fast-fashion stakes in the world’s second-largest economy.
The almost 19,000-square-foot flagship, which opens today, is just the first step of the California-based retailer’s aggressive push into the Japanese market. Executives said the chain is gunning to have as many as 100 stores in the country, although the timing of the rollout hinges on finding the right locations.
