You can buy Zara clothes online from October 4
You will no longer have to visit Zara's retail stores to shop. The Spanish apparel maker is introducing online shopping for its customers in India from October 1. Zara's entire collection in its 20 stores across India will be available for online shopping on its website and app. Here's all you need to know before you make your first purchase on zara.com/in.
If you live in a metro city or Hyderabad or Ahmedabad, you'll have your purchase delivered at your doorstep within 2-4 working days. For everywhere else in India, it will take 5-8 working days. Home delivery is free only for orders more than Rs. 4,000. For every other order, you'll have to shell out Rs. 299. Exchange and return, however, is free.
Though its digital presence will make shopping more convenient for customers, Zara will not offer any special discounts on its online collection. The prices of the garments sold online will be the same as those in retail stores. The apparel giant has opened a warehouse near Delhi to serve the Indian market. India will be the 46th country to have Zara's online store.
Zara was launched in India in 2010 by Inditex SA in a collaborative venture with the Tata group. Of Zara's 20 retail stores across India, five are in Mumbai alone. Its turnover in India for 2016-17 rose by 21% from last year to Rs. 1,023cr.
