Largest Zara flagship store in Germany – Inditex and Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield extend partnership at Westfield Centro: Zara doubles the area to 6,000 square metres in future and establishes latest store concept

Zara is relocating within the shopping and leisure destination and significantly expanding its presence: Through extensive construction measures, a flagship store with 6,000 square metres of rental area is being created on a central axis on the ground floor of Westfield Centro. The opening is planned for the first half of 2025. Until then, Zara will continue to operate its current store in the center. Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) and Inditex are once again strengthening their strategic partnership in Germany with this new cooperation.

In Zara’s own collections for women, men and children, Zara combines trend-conscious designs with classic basics for all ages. Customers at Westfield Centro can look forward to even more space for special fashion experiences from the Spanish brand: In the shopping and leisure destination, the diverse fashion lines will take up an area of 6,000 square metres from the first half of 2025. In the new flagship store, Zara will also implement the brand’s latest shop and design concept and place a special focus on digital and omnichannel services.

Constantin Wiesmann, Director of Leasing Austria & Germany at Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, says: “The extensive Zara flagship store reinforces Westfield Centro’s role as the leading fashion and lifestyle destination in the region. With the largest Zara store in Germany, we’re creating another highlight and showcasing the appeal of this location for large global brands that want to implement their exceptional flagship styles and latest concepts. We’re pleased about expanding our partnership with Inditex and opening the new flagship store in the first half of 2025.”
