Who owns the high street: Inditex

Includes ZaraBershka, Stradivarius, Massimo Dutti and Pull & Bear

Renowned throughout the industry for hero brand Zara’s short lead times, vertical supply chain and speedy responsiveness to trends, Spanish conglomerate Inditex’s numerous fascias command a sizeable chunk of the UK high street.

As well as young fashion brands Bershka, Pull & Bear and Stradivarius, Inditex acquired fellow Spanish label Massimo Dutti in 1991.

Zara Home launched in 2003, and the group also operates premium womenswear brand Uterqüe and lingerie brand Oysho outside the UK. Inditex started life in 1963 as dress and dressing gown manufacturer Confecciones GOA.

Founder and majority shareholder Amancio Ortega opened the first Zara in La Coruña, Spain, 12 years later. Inditex now operates 7,504 stores globally, including 66 Zaras and five Bershkas in the UK.
