Zara is the fast-fashion mecca we know and love. Hey, even celebs can’t resist (who can forget Kate Middleton’s biker jeans or Selena Gomez’s super cute denim date night jacket?). In order to score the best deals, a Zara employee is helping shoppers make the most out of their mall trips with a few helpful tips.
“The best time to shop at Zara is before noon,” an anonymous employee told Popsugar. “As soon as it hits 1pm, the fitting line and register lines get super long. The busiest days are weekday afternoons, because that’s when people are on their lunch breaks, and the weekends.”
And while Zara’s website carries plenty of inventory, if you live in NYC and love the thrill of scoring something IRL, here’s another tip for you. “Most Zara stores don’t carry everything that is online,” the employee continued. “The stores that receive the new online merchandises first in NYC are the 52nd Street and SoHo locations.”
And if you’ve arrived before noon and checked out the Manhattan stores, but still can’t find what you’re looking for, there is one last hope. “Customers can actually order from the warehouse! If you don’t see an item on the floor but it is online, ask a Zara employee to look it up in the warehouse location,” the employee said. “The order can then be shipped to the store for you the next day.”
Good stuff, right?! Sounds like the perfect reason to stop at Zara on your next lunch break.
