According to Trent Ltd’s annual report, Zara’s store expansion strategy remains focused on establishing a presence in high-quality retail spaces. Currently, ITRIPL operates 20 Zara stores across 11 cities, one less than the previous financial year.

In addition to Zara, the Inditex group also has a similar 51:49 joint venture with Trent Ltd for operating Massimo Dutti stores in India. This partnership has also witnessed substantial revenue growth of 45.54% during FY ’23.

With a focus on maintaining a strong presence in premium retail spaces, Zara continues to expand its footprint in the Indian market.
