Inditex improves margins with same-stores sales growth

The owner of the fashion retailer Zara, Inditex, has reported record-breaking revenues and gross margin improvements in the first quarter of the year.

Inditex revealed an increase of 7% in overall sales in local currencies and a record-breaking revenue of €6bn (£5.29bn) with a 9% sales increase between 1 May and 11 June.

The fashion retailer also reported a gross margin improvement of 58.9% despite its profitability being affected by a high level of non-Euro sales.  

This year, Inditex opened several new flagship stores in Zara, Pull & Bear, Massimo Dutti, among others. It also strengthened its design capabilities with its Spanish HQ and offered a new tech-focus placing automated order collection points, self-checkout and mobile payment systems in its key locations.

Pablo Isla, CEO of Inditex, said: “The strength of the integrated store and online model, bolstered by continued innovation, is driving solid growth and notable job creation.”
