COSTA MESA, CA-Los Angeles-based clothing retailer Forever 21 has signed a long-term lease for 43,000 square feet of the Sears store at South Coast Plaza and is slated to move into portions of two floors at the store in the spring of 2011. Sears will continue to operate in the remainder of the store, which will feature a new layout to accommodate Forever 21′s larger store concept, XXI Forever.

The new location will be a flagship store for XXI Forever, according to Larry Meyer, Forever 21 executive vice president. Sears Holdings vice president of leasing Alan Shaw says that the Forever 21 location in the northwest quadrant of South Coast Plaza is expected to benefit all the retailers in this area with the traffic that Forever 21 generates. He says that the new Forever 21 store’s proximity to Bristol Street and customer parking “make the Sears location one of the best locations at South Coast Plaza.”
