Zara to open flagship store at Westgate, Oxford
9 April 2018
The Westgate Oxford Alliance, a joint venture partnership between Landsec and The Crown Estate, today announces that leading fashion retailer, Zara, will move to a flagship location at Westgate, Oxford. The new store is due to open later this year.
Zara will move from its current Oxford location and will almost double in size to open a three-storey, 39,500 sq. ft. store along the North Arcade of Westgate. The store will be offering the latest trends in clothing for men, women, and children.
Joe Grimes, Inditex Real Estate Director for UK & Ireland, acting on behalf of Zara, said: “We are delighted to have agreed terms for this very exciting relocation and to be delivering our full product range to the Oxford market in the near future. We look forward to working with the Westgate Oxford Alliance in the coming months to secure an opening for this calendar year.”
Russell Loveland, Senior Portfolio Director, Landsec, said: “Zara’s decision to relocate to Westgate reflects the centre’s position as the prime destination for retailers. We’re committed to providing the best experience possible for guests and are confident that Zara will further enhance the experience of visitors to Westgate.”
Zara joins an impressive fashion offering at Westgate, including Uniqlo, & Other Stories, Cos, Ted Baker, Hugo Boss, Gant, Mint Velvet and Reiss.
