Inditex to close up to 1,200 smaller stores globally

Published
Jun 11, 2020

As Inditex focuses on its new strategy that’s designed to boost sales and profits via larger, digitally-enabled stores, up to 1,200 of its smaller location could close.


Massimo Dutti



The Zara owner is planning to “absorb” between 1,000 and 1,200 shops, most of them sites that it has operated for some time, with a focus on closures for its smaller brands such as Bershka, Pull & Bear and Massimo Dutti.

Asia and Europe are expected to bear the brunt of the closures at the company that yesterday swung to a quarterly loss for the first time ever as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

But this isn’t expected to lead to a jobs cull with store staff being redeployed, not only to other locations, but to roles such as fulfilling online orders.

The company currently has 7,412 stores and will have between 6,700 and 6,900 after the closures as it will continue to open new shops in larger, flagship locations.

The news of the closures from one of the largest and most successful fashion retail names underlines both the impact that the pandemic has had but also how it has accelerated trends that were already happening before the outbreak. 

Inditex had been moving to a stronger digital focus in recent periods and had also been concentrating on larger stores that could work seamlessly with its digitalisation drive.

Inditex, like other giants such as H&M and Next, recognises that traditional stores aren’t as profitable as they used to be and that to boost sales and profits, they need to evolve. But it also recognises how important stores are both as a brand showcase and as a way to fulfil online orders while offering shoppers maximum convenience.

The company has allocated €1 billion to boost its online ops and a further €1.7 billion to ensure its stores and webstore are fully integrated.
