Forever21 opening on Chestnut street
After waiting almost a year since the official announcement, and several years of secretly pining for this fast fashion retailer, I was one of over 600 people that finally lined up outside of 1708 Chestnut St. Feb. 14 for Forever 21’s grand opening. The first 300 people in line were given gift certificates to spend that day ranging from $10 to $220. Customers began queuing at around 6:30 a.m., and by 9:15 a.m., when I arrived to the party, there were already at least 400 people standing there in a line that wrapped around the whole block. When asked why they were waiting in line for so long, answers ranged from being avid fans of Forever 21 to just wanting to be a part of the exciting opening event. One customer said, “I came because I was excited for free money.”

Store profile: Legacy boutique
As winter arrives, we naturally start to transition our wardrobes from vibrant summer colors to ethereal black hues. Sometimes it can be difficult to find trendy and classy clothing pieces for a reasonable price. Located on the corner of 40th Street and Lancaster Avenue, a few blocks from Drexel University, is where you can find the Legacy Boutique. While most boutiques around University City are overpriced, fortunately for us college students, Legacy has a rule that everything in the store is under $50.

Store Profile: Styles inspired by MARC
A creative genius is impossible to stop. One of the most respected hair stylists known today, Marcus Williams, was raised from the most unlikely of places: the suburbs of Delaware County. Since he was a teenager, he has had an uncanny passion for cutting hair. At the early age of 14, his siblings and relatives recognized his natural talent and began to allow him to cut their hair. Soon after, through word of mouth, his customer base expanded to his high school friends and his hobby bloomed into a full-fledged dream for a career in hair styling.
