THE long-awaited Zara store will open in Westfield Kotara on Thursday.
It is the first store in Newcastle and the 19th store of the brand in Australia.
The new store located on level two next to Pandora will have a floor space of almost 2500 square metres and will feature the latest Spring/Summer collections, designed exclusively for the southern hemisphere by a dedicated team.
The opening comes after Westfield unveiled its new youth and urban precinct in October.
The 30 new and relocated retailers in the 7000-square-metre precinct on level two was the start of a $160 million transformation and brought the centre’s total floorspace to about 80,000 square metres.
Kmart will be the next to open in the precinct on November 29.
