It is really great news that Spanish retailer Zara will be opening in the V&A Waterfront, in Cape Town! There has been a great deal of speculation as to whether this major international retailer would actually be opening a store, in Cape Town but the good news was announced earlier this month. As I mentioned in a previous post, Zara is one of my favourite stores to shop at, when I visit London – not that I ever need an excuse to shop! I have bought some truly classic items from the UK stores in the past, so I hope that the local store lives up to my expectations.
David Green, CEO of the V&A Waterfront, says this popular, high street fashion brand will be an exciting addition to the already impressive line-up of internationally acclaimed brands in the V&A Waterfront fold. The new Zara store will be located in the Victoria Wharf, in the V&A Waterfront’s main shopping centre. The brand is felt to be a good fit for the Waterfront which is said to be Cape Town’s premier retail and entertainment destination.
So we eagerly await the opening, which is scheduled for later this year. Further details are still to be announced, so I will be sure to keep you undated on any news.
