Zara reveals Sylvia Park location

Die-hard Zara fans got a¬†glimpse of the first New Zealand store as the Spanish fashion giant unveiled¬†its Sylvia Park location this weekend. It was revealed late last year that Zara would be setting up shop at Sylvia Park¬†but the exact location of the store had been kept secret up until now.¬†While there wasn’t much to see¬†except from some¬†branded signage, the reveal attracted a number of shoppers and Zara devotees.¬†The 2528-sqm store is positioned opposite Glassons and Country Road.

Zara will open in Sylvia Park, Auckland, this spring and will be joined by Swedish chain H&M later in the year.
