Spanish-based Inditex plans to further expand in Canada, intending to open new Zara and Massimo Dutti stores. It’s a bold move for the company, which barely advertises and currently experiences mediocre sales for its Massimo Dutti brand. Zara does gangbusters sales in Canada, however, warranting further expansion that will see new and expanded stores, as well as new Zara Home locations.
Zara currently operates 26 Canadian stores, as well as two Zara Home locations. Zara intends to substantially expand its Canadian operations, according to sources, including its Zara Home concept. Zara Home’s first Canadian store opened in August of 2013 at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre, with a second location opening shortly thereafter at Montreal’s Carrefour Laval. An Ottawa Zara Home location is confirmed for 2016, within a new two-level Zara flagship at Rideau Centre. We’re awaiting further details of Zara’s Canadian store expansion, and we’ll update this article when we learn more.
