The Gateway Shopping Centre in Kwazulu-Natal will become the newest home to Zara in South Africa when the first store in Durban opens on the 2nd of March 2012. This is the second one of its kind in South Africa. The Inditex Group’s store in Gateway Shopping Centre will be more than 1,700 square meters of retail space on a single floor and will occupy a coveted location in this prominent shopping mall.
Zara’s South African customers will find a revamped store image, with display areas and furnishings designed to convey a sense of simplicity and elegance. To create a light-filled environment, Zara’s design teams used materials such as resin and aluminium for furnishings and fittings and porcelain tiles for flooring. Neutral shades predominate in the store’s colour scheme, allowing Zara‘s fashions to take centre stage.
For shoppers in South Africa, Zara offers a customised range of apparel for women, men and kids. Its collections are tailored to the country’s climatic conditions in the Southern Hemisphere. Zara sells the latest trends in garments and fabrics most appropriate for the season, and constantly refreshes its collections with new items being delivered to stores twice weekly.
