Customers shop at a store of Forever 21 to close down at a shopping mall in Beijing, China, 20 May 2019. A growing number of foreign fast fashion brands that used to fill the wardrobes of young Chinese have been going out of style. On Thursday afternoon, the three-story Forever 21 store on Changde Road in Shanghai was in disarray. The store was holding a big fire sale to liquidate its inventory, with all items selling for 30 yuan ($4.38) or less. Some counters were cluttered with piles of dumped shoes and clothes, and customers were rummaging through the piles as if searching for treasures in a rubbish heap. A salesperson at the store told the Global Times on Sunday that Forever 21 is soon going to exit the mainland market, but she said she hadn't heard from the company about the exact date.
