The Group's capital expenditure amounted to €1.24 billion during FY13 going mostly to new store openings, as well as the refurbishment and enlargement of existing stores.
 
At the same time, Inditex continued to expand its decision-making centres and logistics capacity in Spain, updating technology at the logistics facilities and expanding the Group headquarters. Strong investment continued through 2013 across the Group's distribution centres in Arteixo, Meco and Zaragoza. 
 
The latter's distribution centre recently began operating an automated hanging garment storage and retrieval system which is best in class due to its technical features and size. A new distribution centre in Cabanillas (Guadalajara), meanwhile, is expected to begin operations in the coming months. The 70,000-sqm extension of the Group headquarters in Arteixo is also now complete and mostly benefits the Zara and Zara Home sales divisions.
