Plus Size Fashion News: Wet Seal Plus Opens First Store In California
We love bringing you ‘hot off the press’ news and this one is BIG! Young women’s clothing retailer, Wet Seal is opening a Plus Only store!
When I heard this I was ecstatic. Wet Seal keeps amazing people. Last month they announced that they were going to start offering plus clothing in their stores. Then recently they had a teen model with down syndrome in their latest ad campaign. Now they are opening a plus only store in Clovis, CA.
Why is this major?
This is great news because Wet Seal is targeted toward the teen market. I do not know of any plus stores that are geared towards teens only. Wet Seal + will be the store’s name and they will be opening Wednesday (10/2) but the grand opening will be on October 11 from 4-9 PM. The new store will be located in the Clovis Crossing Regional Shopping Center in Clovis, California.
So all our California followers go out and support so that they know more of this is welcomed. Also, take advantage of the gifts and 20% off sale too!
Unlike Abercrombie & Fitch, Wet Seal is paying attention to the fact that the average woman in the U.S. is plus size and that the plus industry spends the most in clothing dollars without slowing down in momentum.
I’m excited and hope this is just the beginning. Our teens need choices that cater to their tastes and style. I applaud Wet Seal for once again step out of the box.
