Forever 21, the fashion retailer that operates a store at Peachtree Mall in Columbus, said Tuesday it is investigating an apparent data breach.

Only certain point of sale devices in some stores were affected when the encryption on those devices was not operating, the company said.

The company said its investigation is focused on card transactions in Forever 21 stores from March through October.

"Because the investigation is continuing, complete findings are not available, and it is too early to provide further details on the investigation", the statement says.

"If customers see an unauthorized charge, they should immediately notify the bank that issued the card", it said. Payment card network rules generally state that cardholders are not responsible for such charges. "Forever 21 expects to provide an additional notice as it gets further clarity on the specific stores and timeframes that may have been involved".

Forever 21 joins one of dozens of companies that have been hit by data hacks this year alone: Arby's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Chipotle, Verizon, Equifax, and Whole Foods Market are among 37 companies that have reported a data breach in 2017, according to Identity Force, a personal information security and protection service company that tracks data breaches.
