For this store opening Zara wasn't taking any chances so it flew in extra staff from overseas to handle the anticipated crowds. And a crowd there truly was when fashion craving Melbournian fashionistas, both men and women, waited in queues all day, some for up to nine hours before the store opened. They waited and waited for their turn to bag some of the opening Zara fashion bargains. It was like the Boxing Day sales! Even with a limit of ten items per customer, the shelves of classic dresses, coats, jeans and knitwear were quickly cleared but routinely replenished. As what happened at the Zara opening in Sydney, it didn't take long at all, in fact within a few minutes of opening, most of the shelves had been cleared. There is little doubt that the long queues will be back tomorrow.

This is really all amazing when you consider that other fashion retailers around the country have shown poor sales results so far in 2011 and some, for example Colorado, even closing down. But what's all the fuss about when it comes to Zara? Simple! Zara means the latest and affordable, fashionable clothing.
