Which one of these 3 places would be our competition and why best buy, food for less or forever 21?

3 Answers

Forever 21 , retail store with similar trending outfits and low prices

Forever 21 considering the demographic and consumer you are reaching to. Best Buy is more for electronic consumers as well as food for less is for those who seek food, both forever 21 and H&M are the only establishments on this list who specialize in distributing the same merchandise thus making H&M a possible competition .

H&M is brand that people can come to and try better outfits than Forever 21. Out of the three that is been selected to be H&M’s competition would Forever 21 since it’s on the trending list of 2018 where H&M is also apart that trend but it makes a even harder decision for a customer to choose between the two. For my standards I’d go with H&M better options for a professional outfit and an actual fashion statement to start from. Less
