Store replacing Saks on King Street targeting Jan. 15

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Officials at Forever 21 expect to open their store on King Street in mid-January, they said Tuesday.

The discount clothier signed on to take over the former Saks Fifth Avenue location in downtown Charleston earlier this year.

While officials hope to hold a grand opening Jan. 15, the date is not yet confirmed they said. The store started hiring employees in October.
