The exact number of closures would be contingent on negotiations with landlords. Forever 21 said it would continue to honor gift cards, returns and exchanges. Forever 21, which said e-commerce made up 16 percent of its sales, saw its revenue drop to $3.3 billion last year, down from $4.4 billion in 2016. It expects the restructured company to bring in $2.5 billion in annual sales. So far this year, retailers in the United States have announced more than 8,200 store closings.
