Great news for the New Zealand fashion scene - popular Spanish chain store Zara will be hanging on our racks for the first time this weekend.

New retailer, The Shop, will throw open its doors this Saturday in the Milford Centre on the North Shore.

The family run outlet promise to exclusively stock a wide selection of Zara women's, men's and children's clothing.

"The Shop will have regular shipments of Zara clothing straight from Spain and will also provide the opportunity for young, up-and-coming New Zealand labels to exhibit and sell their designs within the store," a spokesperson for the retailer told the Herald online.

There are rumours the big-brand global retailer is eyeing Queen Street for its flagship store.

Ludo Campbell-Reid, Auckland design champion, recently told the NZ Herald"people are talking to them" following the announcement that Whitcoulls would leave its home on Queen St/Victoria St corner.

"We need those brands. I remember when I came here in 2006, people said 'nobody goes to Auckland CBD to shop'. That's a load of rubbish. We have to provide a great shopping experience and I think we are," he said.
