atria Watford, one of the UK’s most popular retail and leisure destinations, owned by property company SGS and asset managed by Global Mutual in conjunction with Savills as property managers, is pleased to announce that ZARA’s upsized store has opened at atria Watford.

The newly opened ZARA store is located in a prime position in Charter Place and stocks the brand’s much-loved fashion ranges for women, men and kids.


The two-story store represents a significant upsize and spans 43,000 sq ft – over double the size of the brand’s previous unit (18,000 sq ft.) The retailer has signed a 15-year lease on the new unit.

atria Watford is a leading retail and leisure destination, covering 1.4 million sq ft in total. The centre is home to hundreds of brands, of all shapes and sizes – from small independents through to household names – with some other well-known tenants including NEXT, Mango, Uniqlo and Hollister.

Steve Gray, Head of European Retail Asset Management at Global Mutual, comments:

“It’s been a strong start to 2024 for atria Watford. The centre has been a hive of activity and we’re incredibly excited to see the new ZARA store open its doors. The household name has always been very popular with our shoppers and the upgraded store will act as a real footfall driver, significantly enhancing our fashion offer. Here at atria Watford, we continue to see strong demand for space, our pipeline looks healthy, and we look forward to making further exciting announcements in the months ahead.”
