Springfield Reviews

This area is very accessible and easy to find needed things. I personally think some stores are too big and disorganized that it overwhelms me. One of those stores being Forever 21. I also don't agree with their return policy (all returns go to store credit). I understand why they might do that, so that they don't lose money but it adds to the stress if I want to spend my hard earned money on a piece of clothing due to me not knowing if I'll still like it when I get home.
