South Coast Plaza is the latest shopping center to be graced with one of those humongous Forever 21 concept stores that are technically known as XXI Forever. The new F21 is 43,000 square feet, the same space as the recently-opened BevCenter location. Here's the kicker: it's inside Sears. SEARS, of all places, which is a pretty smart retailing move, on their behalf. The grand opening is tomorrow at 10am. [Racked Inbox, OCR]
