Being prepared for shopping during the COVID-19 outbreak is just as important as adding things to your Black Friday shopping list. Use the information below to prepare for what's to come.
Forever 21 has steadily been reopening its doors. A majority of stores are back open for business, but there are some important changes you need to be aware of.
You’ll notice plenty of signage at your local store describing the safety measures that location is undertaking. These may vary per store based on local guidelines, but some of the things you can expect are associates requesting that you wear a face mask while in the store; markers will remind you to adhere to social distancing recommendations; and increased sanitation, especially on commonly used surfaces.
If you’re not sure whether your nearby location has reopened, check out the store location at forever21.com. You can search by zip code to see which stores are open around you, as well as their business hours. Note that stores located within shopping or outlet malls that are closed will remain closed until those malls reopen.
Forever 21 hasn’t spilled the beans on what we can expect for Black Friday 2020, but part of the excitement of the season is just imagining what great things are to come. To help visualize it, consider what Forever 21 had on special last year.
The store extended early-bird access to online shoppers in 2019. The first deals of the Black Friday shopping event went live on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. These weren’t the event’s best deals, but there were enough to get shoppers in the mood for saving.
In-store shoppers had their opportunity to snag great deals starting on Thanksgiving Thursday. The store also released new discounts for online shoppers. It was on Thursday that the really good deals were revealed.
Forever 21’s Black Friday event wrapped up in 2019 on Tuesday, December 1st.
Now that you have an idea of when Black Friday occurred last year and what might be in store for later this month, let’s look at what kinds of deals were available in 2019.
When Forever 21 kicked off its first sale online on Tuesday, it offered shoppers the opportunity to save 30% across the site. There were almost no exclusions except the typical ones, like gift cards and shipping. To take advantage of this deal, shoppers had to apply a discount code at checkout.
When local stores opened on Black Friday, guests were treated to an extra 70% off sale items. There were also a variety of exciting doorbusters starting at just $2. There was no need for any coupons as all discounts and special pricing were automatically applied.
Forever 21 also upped the ante for online shoppers on Black Friday. The site-wide discount increased to 40%, plus there was an extra 50% off sale items. Again, you needed a promo code to see the discounts, but it was easily accessible on the homepage.
Online shoppers also had doorbusters of their own they could chase after. There were sweaters starting at $8, dresses starting at $10, and holiday gifts starting at $4.
Another exciting perk for online buyers was free shipping, with no minimum purchase required. This deal didn’t require a coupon code, so it stacked flawlessly with the site-wide discounts.
While we don’t know if Forever 21 will offer free shipping again this year, take note that you can still enjoy free delivery as long as your order total is at least $50. While we’re hoping for free shipping with no minimum, having to spend $50 isn’t so bad.
If you’re shopping online this year, please be aware that there may be shipping delays due to the pandemic and increased mail volume. Forever 21 will work hard to get your order out on time, but it notes that there could be delays of up to several days once your parcel is in the hands of the courier.
Whether you’re shopping in-store or online this year, it’s important that you think about return policies so that you can bring back anything that might not fit right.
Despite the pandemic, Forever 21’s return policy remains unchanged. This means that you have 60 days from the date of your purchase or the date of shipment to return unwanted merchandise. The return time period is the same for both online and in-store purchases.
Forever 21 does not offer free returns by mail. If you want to send something back, you’ll be responsible for shipping costs. If you are able to safely bring back items to your local store, this is the better option. There is no cost for these returns, and you’ll receive your refund immediately. Should you decide to return by mail instead, you can expect your refund within two to three weeks.
