Zara to close all its stores in Turkey – columnist

Spanish clothing giant Zara will shut all of its stores in Turkey, according to Fatih Altaylı, a columnist for Habertürk newspaper.  

The company will provide only online sales in the country, Altaylı said on Wednesday, citing one of Turkey’s largest textile producers that he didn’t identify.

“However much they try to show that the decision “was taken for reasons of high rents and high costs” I doubt that is the case,” Altaylı wrote.
