Fashion distributor Inditex's store count touches 4,000

Sep '08
Inditex has opened today the Group's store number 4,000 in Tokyo. It is a Zara store located in Marronnier Street, in the heart of Ginza district, one of the more remarkable commercial areas in the world.

The new store develops a highly-innovative architectural solution which was chosen from an international project competition settled up by the building's owners to raise its aesthetic and commercial value. This opening, the 35th Zara store in Japan, is also a new landmark in its growth in this market, in which has just celebrated the tenth anniversary of the opening of the first store.

Zara has had stores in Tokyo since 1998, when it set up in the district of Shibuya. After this first location, the chain extended its presence to other significant shopping areas in the city and to other cities in Japan. The district of Ginza, located in the centre of the Japanese capital, houses a dense commercial area, which is considered to be the most important in Tokyo and one of the most outstanding shopping areas in the world.

Close to some of the most important nodes of communication in the Tokyo conurbation, and to its political, administrative and business centre, this was the place chosen for the opening in April 2003 of the fifth Zara shop in the Asian metropolis.

Japan is the country in the Asia-Pacific region with the largest number of Inditex stores and is, together with China and Korea, the strategic priority for the growth of the Group in Asia. The Japanese market is an excellent commercial location, as well as a valuable scenario for the observation of new trends, both as regards fashion and the evolution of the retail distribution sector.

Inditex has carried out six openings in Japan so far this year, reaching a total of 35 outlets in the country, and expects to finish this year with some forty stores in this market. Apart from the opening in Ginza-Marronnier, in the last few weeks the inauguration of another new Zara store in one of the best locations in the district of Shinjuku, Tokyo, has taken place.

The store occupies an entire newly-constructed building. The exterior visual impact achieved by this building converts the Zara store into an aesthetic reference point in the area.

Inditex, one of the world's largest fashion distributors, has stores in 70 countries in Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa. In addition to Zara, the largest of its retail chains, Inditex has another seven concepts: Pull and Bear, Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Stradivarius, Oysho, Zara Home and Uterqüe.
