Glasgow continues to invest in its reputation as a must-visit shopping destination (second only to London) with the £70million retail development of the new Atlas site situated at the north end of Buchanan Street.

And as I walked past the building work recently I couldn't help but get excited by the massive signs proclaiming a brand new Forever 21 coming soon (well, March 2013, but it's never too early to get excited by forthcoming shopping opportunities, huh?)

This will be American fast fashion brand Forever 21's fourth UK store, following the recent opening of 3 floor flagship store on the old HMV site in London's Oxford Street - a launch that was supported by newly appointed face of the brand, model DJ and blogger Bip Ling, and the new Westfield Stratford City branch which opened earlier this month.
At 60,000 square feet the forthcoming Glasgow Atlas branch will certainly entice Glasgow's very own fashionistas, with the cut price brand known for its quick interpretations of catwalk to shop floor no doubt appealing to those who already travel to the city to visit its famous golden style mile.
