Retail updates: An even cheaper Forever 21 store at Legends, Carhartt in Independence

Here are retail openings across the metro.

▪ Forever 21 is bringing its F21 Red store to the Legends Outlets Kansas City.

The company said its customers can find some of the same items in an F21 Red store that can be found in one of its full-line Forever 21 shops — including Forever 21 Men, Forever 21 Plus and Forever 21 Girls. And while F21 Red is not a discount or outlet store, it “maintains the entry-level price points Forever 21 is known for offering.”

The store will focus on tops, denim, active, logo tees, fashion basics and accessories. In addition, it also will have an increased assortment for men, boys and girls. Customers can expect to find jeans for less than $8, tank tops for less than $5, and camisoles for $2.

The 16,045-square-foot store is scheduled to open Nov. 7 at 1817 Village West Parkway, Kansas City, Kan.

The company currently operates 21 F21 Red stores and more than 730 Forever 21 stores.

▪ Watch Station plans a Nov. 2 opening in the Legends Outlets next to GameStop. Watch Station sells fashion and designer luxury timepieces, including Fossil-owned and licensed watch brands like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Emporio Armani, DKNY and Diesel.

▪ Carhartt, a premium work wear brand since 1889, will open its first area store in Independence Center in mid-November.

The 3,500-square-foot store will showcase the brand’s rugged styles for the family, including apparel and footwear.

▪ Bare Medspa plans a Thursday, Oct. 22, kickoff for its new medical spa in the Power & Light District.

The event, from 6 to 9 p.m. at The Pool at One Light, at 1251 Main St., will have skincare demonstrations, giveaways and gift bags for the first 100 people attending the event, as well as live music and light refreshments.

The 1,100-square-foot medical spa plans an early 2016 opening on the first floor of the One Light Luxury Apartments at 13th and Walnut streets.
