Following rampant speculation as to whether Canberra will be getting it’s very own Zara store I’m going to call it and say that YES, I am a believer!
A reliable source has informed me that their partner is working on the store fit-out and has confirmed seeing a building contract for ZARA which will be located on level 1 of the Canberra Centre across from French Connection. Expected completion in December 2012.
Earlier this week I did do some of my own investigations of the site and think it’s highly probable. A large number of stores in that area have been relocated. These include Trenery, Harts, Diana Ferrari… the whole area (including parts of the stairwell and carpark) have been secretively boarded up. By peeking through the cracks I can see the whole area has been gutted, ready for something amazing!!
