And now the news you've been waiting for months to hear:
Zara's downtown Seattle location will open on February 13, 2014.
(Pause for celebratory cheering and dancing.)
It's been almost a year since we first broke the news that the Spain-based retailer was coming to Westlake, and it seems that the whole city has been on the edge of its seat since.
The February date is a bit of a bummer for those hoping to shop the 31,000 square-foot store before the new year. But the point is, it's happening. We can almost see the fast-fashion brand's modern, tailored looks taking up prime closet space now.
In the meantime, peruse Zara's fall/winter sale online, and mark your calendars for spring styles in store in just a few short months.
