St David’s Cardiff has announced the signing of global fashion brand Zara, opening a new flagship at the destination this summer.
The 36,500 sq ft store will be located on Upper Grand Arcade, opposite the new Morphe Cosmetics, which is also to open this summer.
The new flagship store will offer Zara’s full range of menswear, womenswear and accessories over two levels. The new store format includes new omni-channel retail integration, with an automated collection point for customers to make fast product collections.
As part of this signing, Hollister also relocated and upsized into a new 12,100 sq ft store.
Speaking on behalf of the St David’s Partnership, Russell Loveland, senior portfolio director at Landsec, said: “Zara is the leading brand for global powerhouse Inditex, and their commitment to St David’s is a sign of the strength of Cardiff and St David’s. Their market leading approach to new product and customer experience is sure to be exceptionally well-received by our guests when they open this summer”.
