Forever 21, a major clothing company known for offering fashionable and trendy items, has shuttered its store at the Queens Center mall.

The California-based company closed for good at the 90-15 Queens Blvd. shopping center on Jan. 31, according to a spokesperson for the Queens Center mall. Forever had occupied two floors at the mall.

The closure comes about six months after another global clothing company closed at the mall.

H & M, which is based in Sweden, closed its location at the mall in June, the spokesperson said. H & M also occupied a two-floor store at the mall.

It is unclear why the companies decided to shutter their stores at the mall. Neither company could be reached for comment before publication.

“With every closure brings opportunity,” a spokesperson for the Queens Center mall said.

“We will be making an announcement shortly on two new retailers that will be taking their place at Queens Center. As always, we are committed to providing our customers with a unique mix of retailers at this shopping center.”

This story has been updated following a correction issued by a spokesperson for the Queens Center Mall. The spokesperson initially informed this publication that H & M had shuttered on Jan. 31 and that Forever closed in June.
