The Inditex Group today opens its first Zara store in Beijing, located at The Place shopping mall. The store has more than 1,500 sqm of retail space spread over two floors. Direct street access to the store opens in an impressive façade, designed to give an original character in accordance with the prominent location in one of the most relevant Asian cities.
The main access leads to the store ground floor, entirely dedicated to women wear. First floor, with independent access from the shopping mall interior, is occupied by men and kids wear sections. The Zara’s architectural team has applied to this store the latest Zara’s image and layout conceived for the most recent openings worldwide.
