Zara is set to open in Auckland in October

Global retail giant Zara has announced an opening date for their first New Zealand store.

The fashion chain is set to open at their Sylvia Park, Auckland, location on October 6 at 9.30am. This is hot on the heels of competitor brand H&M, who is also opening their first New Zealand store five days earlier on October 1, also at Sylvia Park.

Unlike H&M, who has kept up a steady flow of hype since announcing their plans for a New Zealand launch in September 2015, Zara has remained relatively quiet about their roll out. Fans first identified the location when Zara unveiled its signage on a ground level store front in the Sylvia Park shopping complex.

The store will offer women’s, men’s and children’s clothing and new stock will arrive twice a week.

Zara is known the world over as a leading fashion giant with more than 2,000 stores in 88 countries. Sylvia Park developer Kiwi Property has invested $11.5 million to accommodate the Auckland flagship.

The opening of Zara and H&M follows other international retailers who recently launched into the New Zealand market including Chanel, Victoria’s Secret, French Connection and Topshop.
