                Sears Holdings Corp faced with extra space in Sears department stores, is joining with hot fashion chair Forever 21. They are going to expand the store-with-in-a-store concept.  Forever 21 will take 15% of the space in the Costa Mesa, CA Sears department store. This transition hopes to generate rent revenue and fashion pizzazz/ traffic. This store-with-in-a-store concept is not new for sears as they have partnered with Land’s End. This joining is strategic by intent. There is a corporate monetary and structural affect taking place. The joining is intended to be long term although it is experimental at this point therefore it is a part of Sears strategy to increase traffic of you teens and women to their stores.
