Zara Vietnam to open first Hanoi store
Spanish fast-fashion retailer Zara plans to launch its first Hanoi store in the second half of this year.
In early April, Zara Vietnam advertised an ‘urgent’ need for staff for a ‘Hanoi expansion’.
While there has not been an official announcement about store’s location, it is believed to located in Tower A of the Vincom Ba Trieu shopping centre. A large area on the first floor has been boarded up for renovation. Tenants have been moved to make room for a ‘coming soon’ fashion brand.
Zara came to Vietnam last September with the first store at Vincom Dong Khoi, Ho Chi Minh City, covering 2400 sqm over two levels.
The store reportedly achieved sales of VND 5.5 billion (US$246,000) on its first day’s trading.
Early this month, H&M confirmed it would open at the same centre, becoming Zara’s neighbor.
A few days ago, local news also predicted another retail giant Uniqlo to launch here via its recruitment.
