(Filed Under Fashion News). On Saturday, August 1 Los Angeles-based Forever 21, Inc. opened its first store in Puerto Rico, which is also the first in Latin America. The store is located at Plaza Las Americas Shopping Mall, the Caribbean's largest shopping mall based in San Juan.

According to the company, over 2,000 eager shoppers were in the store by 10:00 a.m. opening day, and hundreds lined up outside starting at 7:30 p.m. the night before to be one of the first people in to check out the new two-level 38,000-square-feet flagship store.

The first 300 people in received a forever 21 gift card, with the value of up to $210, and goodie bags that included Forever 21 classic flip flops and aluminum water bottles.
