The arrival of Spanish fashion chain Zara will be just one of many reasons to shop in Brighton this Christmas. The new store will be situated in Churchill Square and promises to be a big attraction for men women and children.
Zara is an international fashion retailer with stores in over 30 countries, a number of which are in our own capital as well as other UK towns. Many local people will already be familiar with name and will warmly welcome a branch on their own doorstep.
Zara presents an interesting mix of high fashion at value for money prices but moves stock quickly through the business so as to create an element of exclusiveness.
The company has much in common with Mango, which caused a huge stir when it opened at the bottom of North Street in 2003. Mango was an apparent success from the start in spite of less than perfect trading conditions. It was one of the first stores to open in the middle of the Hannington’s development site during one of the worst trading periods in recent history. It continues to flourish and is a real asset to the city centre along with other European retailers Kurt Keiger and Benetton.
Says city centre manager Soozie Campbell, “The international appeal of Zara and the reputation that goes before it means it will be a big attraction and that can only be good news for the city of Brighton.”
The new store will be open in Churchill Square in time for Christmas 2007.
