Zara To Open In Cape Town


zara-storeExciting news! Spanish retailer Zara to open in Cape Town! Zara will open 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.

      So glad about this news ZARA come to Cape Town!! Would love to have you here I always shop at ZARA when I am in Abu Dhabi and this morning I am on the hunt of a pair of shoes I saw in a magazine and that is why I search for them on the net and got the news. We would love to have a store in Canal Walk Centre as well!

    This is absolutely awesome news….couple of years back I visited the Zara store in New York, my mom accompanied me on this visit, I took a photo as I left the store, mentioning that one day if I have daughter I will name her Zara, well last year Zara was born and that photo of the NY Zara (name) hangs in her room.
