Why we shouldn’t panic about the planned closure of 1 000 Zara stores over the next 2 years

A shopper seen in Zara’s home country, Spain. Photo by Xavi Torrent/Getty Images

  • The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in multiple store closures over the past couple of months. 
  • Zara is the latest major retail outlet to announce upcoming store closures amid the pandemic.
  • But this does not mark the end for the Spanish retailer, as they are slowly making a transition to e-commerce.

Enjoy this Zara sale – it could be the last one. Just kidding.

The news of Zara-owner Inditex’s plans to close more than 1000 stores around the world, has caused much panic on the internet. Not to mention, the thought of threatened livelihoods of Zara employees. However, there’s more to the story than meets the headline. Here’s what we know for sure so far…

Reuters has reported that Inditex, booked its first quarterly loss as the coronavirus crisis forced it to shut most shops, but its shares rose after it unveiled a 2. 7 billion euro plan to accelerate its focus on large stores and online sales. This is after the Spanish company was forced to shut almost 90 percent of its stores from February to April.

Inditex aims to focus on its online business and large stores in prime shopping areas while closing around 1000 of its smaller stores. It expects virtual sales to account for more than a quarter (25 percent) of business by 2022, compared to their current 14 percent. Larger stores will therefore act as distribution hubs for online sales.

Retail rivals H&M and GAP have all reported a drop in sales as global lockdowns have kept stores shut and shoppers at home.

So what does this mean for you and your Zara moodboard right now? 

Well, it was hardly a year ago when we eagerly downloaded the Zara app when they finally launched online shopping in South Africa, eight years after entering the country’s malls in 2011. And we immediately adjusted pretty seamlessly to their new e-commerce offering. So much so that instead of rushing to Sandton City Mall in our masks, we’ve simply grabbed our phones to add this season’s sale items to our carts. Actually checking the cart out mid-month is a story for another day, though. 

The point is, if it does happen that a large number of SA’s Zara stores shut down by 2022, you – the customer – will still have the option of shopping their threads online and you’ll be fine for the most part. Additionally, The Guardian notes that “closures are expected to be concentrated in Asia and Europe,” which inspires a small degree of optimism for us. 

So there’s no need to panic buy just yet.

However, Zara is just one of the symptoms of the pandemic facing the retail industry; the impending brick-and-mortar famine. According to The Guardian, brick-and-mortar retailers around the world have been “forced to re-evaluate their business models during the pandemic, amid expectations of lower footfall in stores for a significant amount of time. ” But the need to reconsider outdated business models had made itself evident in retail long before Covid-19. 

Here, we take a look at some of the brick-and-mortar fatalities we’ve reported on both before and during the coronavirus pandemic:

Prada leaves SA

Prada, the Italian luxury label owned by the Prada Group, announced its departure from Africa’s richest square mile in May, expressing these neatly packed words; “We are writing to inform you that the Prada store at Johannesburg Sandton Mall is now permanently closed.” 

They concluded their very brief letter to the Prada community in SA by saying “Don’t forget to visit our website an social media channels every now and then for some inspiration too.” 

J. Crew bankrupty

J. Crew filed for bankruptcy due to the pandemic. The decision to file for Chapter 11 protection in federal bankruptcy court was reached in early May. It was reported that J. Crew’s e-commerce business will continue and at least two brick-and-mortar stores will open once lockdown restrictions have eased.  

Neiman Marcus… also bankrupt

Also in the first week of May, U.S. luxury department chain, Neiman Marcus Group, filed for bankruptcy protection, marking one of the highest-profile corporate collapses yet among retailers forced to temporarily close stores in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has shoppers stuck at home. 

The Dallas-based retailer reportedly plans to cede control to creditors in exchange for eliminating $4 billion of debt (they also reportedly owe $6 million to Chanel). Its debt currently totals about $5 billion dollars.

Forever 21’s ongoing bankruptcy woes

The end of fashion month in 2019 was culminated by international retail chain Forever 21, filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. According to Forbes, the company’s co-founders Jin Sook and Do Won “Don” Chang were no longer billionaires by July 2019 after over three successful decades of fashion retail.   

SA’s revolving door of international retail outlets 

Here today. Gone tomorrow.

The year 2015 saw the coup de grâce of the 30-year-old Platinum Group which had Aca Joe, Urban, Hilton Wiener, Jenni Button, and Vertigo in its stable, after having furnished the wardrobes of middle class black South African consumers for all occasions season after season. In 2017, Stuttafords stores then finally left our malls for good after 159 years of selling coveted (and overpriced) European and American brands to local fashion enthusiasts. In the same year, all standalone Mango, River Island and Nine West stores also packed their paper bags and left SA retail centers hollow. 

And then we were down to a handful of fast fashion options including Zara, H&M, Cotton On, and Topshop; just to name a few. 

That was until Topshop left us too in 2018, but not without a bang of a sale.

Not too long after officially closing its doors in South Africa, Topshop then resolved to close all 11 of their U. S. stores earlier in 2019 as the brand continued to battle. 

A W24 article detailing the reasons behind these closures referenced Business Insider, saying that Topshop’s parent company Arcadia Group proposed these closures as part of a restructuring deal amid financial difficulty. It was also stated that Topshop will, however, continue to sell its clothing online through its wholesale partners.

Topshop follows its fellow beleaguered Victoria’s Secret, which shared its plans to close 53 stores in the U.S. – and, according to CNN, was due to more women deserting the brand for lingerie startups and big retailers. Both Topshop and Victoria’s Secret have been previously accused of not keeping up with the times when it comes to fashion. 

And therein lies the retail dilemma – the struggle to keep up with the times not only in terms of fashion, but with regards to business trends and changing consumer habits too.

Vanilla Blonde – Mark Tuckey for Cotton On

Last week Wednesday, I drove through to the Cotton On store at the V&A Waterfront for the event starting at 8am. I remember when I moved from Johannesburg to Cape Town finding it bizarre that everything starts a lot later down here. So when I received the invitation for 8am, I triple checked that. It’s one of the earliest events I’ve ever been to in Cape Town, and it was awesome! My day felt so much more productive from the earlier start.

Mark Tuckey is an Australian designer who makes beautiful quality homeware pieces. It launched in South Africa and we were some of the first to see it.

The collection features beautifully designed pieces for various areas of the home categorised by Eat, Drink, Relax, Store, Bathe and Sleep.

The range includes blankets, throws, wooden serving bowls, platters, ceramic storage jars and mugs, wooden chopping board, bed linen and cushions.

The quality is amazing and so is the price. It ranges from R149 for a Twin Mug Set to R1899 for a King Duvet set.

When I was instagramming and tweeting, I got some many questions about which stores the homeware would be in.

Here is a complete list of the Cotton On stores: Brooklyn, Canal Walk, Cavendish, Clearwater, Cresta, Eastgate, Gateway, Pavillion, Rosebank, Sandton and the V&A Waterfront.

I was very grateful for the coffee station…

Can you spot Duke? 

I finally got to meet this wonderful woman, Emma-Jane.

I loved this flatlay. You could choose pieces, lay them out and then stand above it and take an Instagram pic!

After browsing (and touching) all the pieces, Jeff Clements welcomed us all, explained the pieces and the vision and then we were shown a short video.

We were also told that we would be getting a goody bag and in that goody bag was a R1000 gift voucher. How incredibly generous. I was so grateful!

I used my gift voucher on these 2 hand knitted colourful cushions and bought the hand knitted blanket.

I took this photo very quickly, as I popped the cushions in amongst my Zana cushions. In hindsight, I probably should have styled this shot better and also put the blanket on the couch too.

Dammit Pinterest for always making me think of pin-worthy pictures.

Thank you so much for the lovely event!

How to choose a towel: the most complete guide

Have your favorite towels become hard and do not absorb moisture well? Don’t be in a hurry to blame the detergent or conditioner. It’s not about them! It’s just that each thing has its own lifespan. For bath accessories, it is 3 years. Facial varieties and kitchen textiles should be updated even more often – every year and a half. Well, we will try to give an exhaustive answer to the question of how to choose a towel so that it only pleases its owner.

Types of towels

Supermarket shelves will greet you with slender rows of folded towels. But, in order not to get confused in the definitions, the first step is to get acquainted with the classification of textiles.It is based on the purpose of the product.

Beach towel. Huge items of bright, memorable design. Such towels should be lightweight and highly absorbent so that they are not difficult to carry with you, and after bathing, you can easily warm up.

Bath towel . Soft, warm, fluffy – you can wrap yourself in it completely, if suddenly there is no bathrobe nearby. Body towels are almost always made of cotton, so such products are heavy and take a long time to dry. Despite the name, these products are used not only in a bath or sauna, but also at home.

Hand and foot towels. We use them most often: after every hand wash. And in hotels, they completely throw terry products on the floor next to the shower so that the guest does not step barefoot on the cold tiles.

Face towel . Small, but always soft, so as not to injure delicate skin. The main requirement for facial products is tenderness and hypoallergenicity.

Massage towel . They are most often made of flax, sometimes with the addition of cotton. It gets wet quickly, dries for a long time and is not able to give the comfort to which we were accustomed to soft terry products. And yet a linen towel is something special! They need to wipe themselves vigorously, like a washcloth. But the effect is comparable to a light massage: blood flow improves, the mobility of muscles and ligaments increases.

Towel or wedding towel. After the ceremonies, it is customary to keep these products carefully for life. Therefore, it is not practicality that comes to the fore, as in bath towels, but beauty: hand embroidery, hemstitching, appliqués are almost indispensable elements of wedding textiles.

Dish towel . Terry towel or waffle towel is the smallest in size. Flax or cotton is traditionally used for their production, since the product will have to interact not only with water, but also with fat. This means that it will need to be washed at the highest possible temperatures and synthetic threads simply cannot withstand this.

Baby towel . The baby product usually has a double-sided terry weave so that moisture is instantly absorbed. Boys and girls really like the bright design and the image of their favorite characters, and moms and dads choose special models with a hood for their children so as not to catch a cold on their ears after bathing.

Towel sizes

The purpose of the products also influenced their size. Today, towels have a generally accepted size range, which may vary slightly from one manufacturer to another.

Towel type

Dimensions in centimeters








For hands and feet





Beach, massage, sauna





Types of fabrics

Both natural and synthetic fabrics are used for the manufacture of towels.Not all of them will meet your expectations, so you should carefully study all the pros and cons of the material in advance.

Natural materials

Cotton. Durable, environmentally friendly and the most familiar type of towels for us. Such products perfectly absorb moisture, do not cause allergies. Therefore, you can safely recommend them to children and pregnant women. The advantages of cotton towels are strength, durability. The downside is a lot of weight, especially when wet.

There are several variations of cotton towels available:

  • Mahra .You can find out the material by the long soft loops. Terry products are soft, warm and very heavy.
  • Velor . The loops in this version are sheared, due to which the fabric acquires additional softness, but absorbs water much worse.
  • Waffle fabric . A tough material with a recognizable honeycomb-like structure. Use a waffle cloth to sew kitchen towels.
  • Jacquard . These towels are easily recognizable by the alternation of nap and non-nap areas.Jacquard products are beautiful and much lighter than terry ones.

Linen. Durable and breathable fabric. At the same time, it is rough and tough. It is difficult to get used to it, the adherence to such products is rather a tribute to fashion, on the crest of which today are ethnic motives and environmentally friendly materials.

Bamboo . Has a cooling effect, which is very useful for bath models. Absorbs moisture twice as efficiently as cotton counterparts. Bamboo towels are very pleasant to the touch and can compete with natural silk or cashmere in their softness.

Modal . Like linen, cotton or modal bamboo, it is 100% natural. The raw material for it is eucalyptus or beech cellulose. These towels absorb moisture 50% faster than cotton products. And they significantly surpass the latter in softness. Modal could be called an ideal option, if not for the high price and too little choice of products in stores.

Tencel . Natural material woven from eucalyptus fiber. It is very durable, hygroscopic and hypoallergenic. Thanks to their amazing softness, eucalyptus cellulose towels can be safely bought even for newborns. Well, housewives will appreciate the strength of the material, which does not care about frequent washing at a temperature of 90 90 241 0 90 242 C.

Synthetic and mixed materials

Polyamide. Synthetic fabric is highly electrified and does not absorb moisture well. At the same time, such towels dry quickly, retain their original colors for years and delight with a bold design.

Polyester .Another synthetic material, the result of oil refining. Like most man-made fibers, it does not absorb moisture well. But it differs in lightness, durability and the lowest cost.

Microfiber or microfiber . Blended fabric, soft and delicate to the touch. These towels are capable of absorbing a huge amount of water, so they can show themselves in all their glory on the beach, in the sauna or in the pool. The main disadvantage of microfiber is its short service life and the need for delicate washing.

Finally, a summary table will help to determine the choice of material for bath accessories.

Towel specifications











































How long should the pile be?

At first glance, the longer the nap, the better the towel. Indeed, hinges with a height of 8 mm and more add warmth and softness to the product. At the same time, such models do not tolerate regular washings and quickly lose their attractive appearance. A very short pile (less than 3.5 mm) is also bad: such towels absorb moisture worse and become stiff after a couple of months.

Select density

Terry towel density – the number of fibers in grams per square meter. The indicator informs about the ability of the product to absorb moisture and the durability of the model.

Towels density:

  • <400 g / m 2 poorly absorbing moisture;
  • > 600 g / m 2 are inconvenient to use due to their heavy weight;
  • 450–600 g / m 2 – optimal in all respects.

How to choose a towel based on absorbency?

All natural fabrics, be it cotton or Tencel, absorb moisture well. In addition to the composition of the material, other factors also affect the absorbency:

  • Pile length . The longer it is, the more pronounced the water absorption coefficient.
  • Yarn type . It can be double and single, twisted and combed. It is the latter option that absorbs moisture best.
  • Towel density . The higher it is, the more water the product can absorb.

Types of decor

As soon as manufacturers do not decorate towels, trying to attract the attention of buyers. The most common decor options:

Jacquard .Alternating villi of different heights, designers create beautiful relief patterns on the canvas. There are two types of jacquard:

  • Plain . The products are dyed ready-made.
  • Multicolored . For manufacturing, more sophisticated equipment is used, which allows you to immediately weave a towel from multi-colored threads.

Embroidery . The most durable decor material. Embroidery is performed either on a decorative border, or on the canvas itself, if the pile is not too high.

Decorative border – a strip of smooth fabric along the edge of the towel. Most often, its width is 6, 8, 12 cm. The border is decorated with transfer printing, lace, rhinestones and appliqués.

What to look for when buying?

A quality towel is immediately visible:

  • a good product never crumbles;
  • leaves no lint on the hands;
  • its coloring is uniform;
  • the stitches are straight and elastic;
  • no synthetic odors are present;
  • if the edges are decorated with fringes, the length of the threads is adjusted to the millimeter.

Considering the commitment of Russians to cotton products, sellers always convince us that the product is 100% natural. But these assurances are not always true. It is much safer to read the label carefully.

  • 100% cotton – cotton without impurities and additives;
  • organic cotton – the raw materials were grown without the use of chemicals, but were harvested by hand;
  • microcotton – cotton fibers amenable to grinding, due to which the finished canvas became denser;
  • ELS cotton – soft, durable long-staple cotton;
  • combed cotton – combed cotton, similar in structure to the previous type of fiber.

Care Tips

To keep the towel soft and absorbent for a long time, take good care of the product:

  1. Be sure to wash the towel before using it for the first time.
  2. Never put towels in the washing machine drum with items that have buckles, hooks or locks. These elements are able to stretch the loops and spoil the appearance of the terry product.
  3. Wash towels more often so they do not have to be bleached and boiled.
  4. Forget about air conditioners. Emollients envelop the fibers of the fabric with a silicone film, which makes the garments less likely to absorb moisture.
  5. Ironing is optional! You just need to spread the towel after washing and hang it out to dry in fresh air. Drying on the battery will make the towel rough.
  6. If puffs appear on the terry cloth, they can simply be carefully cut off with scissors.

Putting the bag to the hospital.

Tips and tricks

Having a baby is not only a joyful, but also a very responsible event, for which you need to prepare in advance. So let’s quickly find out what things you need to remember to take with you to the hospital, even if we, the future parents or their helpers, with great excitement collect the bag to the hospital. The time to read the article is 5 minutes.


When exactly should you collect the bag in the hospital – each pregnant woman decides individually.Doctors recommend starting to prepare the bag in the maternity hospital from the 30th week, in case of premature birth. A list of things that a woman and a newborn will need is issued in each maternity hospital or by the supervising doctor personally. Some of the mandatory items on this list depend on the time of year when the baby is expected to appear, and some depend on the requirements of the chosen institution, so do not hesitate to clarify any questions you have in advance.

How many bags do you need to collect

Usually three bags need to be prepared – one for the mother, one for the baby and one for the delivery room. However, it should be remembered that things for the father, for the ceremonial discharge, as well as such important things as glasses or contact lenses if they are used by mom, pillow and bedding if they are not provided by the institution, toothbrushes and toothpaste, a plate with a spoon, drinking water, phone and charger, small trash bags, paper towels, disposable obstetric kit, sterile gloves, nipple cream, selected medications, elastic bandage, disposable diapers will also need a separate storage space.

First, we collect the bag, which will be needed directly in the delivery room. In addition to the obligatory medical supplies, we prudently put in it a couple of sets of the first clothes for the newborn, in case one of them gets accidentally dirty. The second bag will be needed for the things the baby needs for several days in the ward. And the third bag will be intended for mom and it should contain the things necessary for her comfort.

Trump’s Second Coming? | Russian community

Nine months have passed since Donald Trump left the White House.But Republican activists are still signaling that they will cheer if Trump becomes the GOP presidential nominee in the 2024 election.

Many Americans who make up the core of the Republican Party continue to enthusiastically attend rallies with the 45th President of the United States. They reject claims by Democrats that Trump is personally responsible for his supporters’ storming of the Capitol on January 6 this year, and still do not believe that Biden won the election legally. According to observers, Trump has not yet lost the charisma that made him almost a cult figure among Republican supporters.
“The popularity of Donald Trump is an interesting phenomenon. It reflects deep divisions in American society and discontent among hard-core conservatives in the Midwest. They are unhappy with the political force they see in the establishment: the so-called “elite” from the East and West coasts. – said Donald Kirk, an independent political observer, in an interview with the Voice of America Russian Service.“But these conservatives do not realize that Trump himself is part of this elite. And yet, his style appeals to conservative ordinary Americans. It is rather difficult to imagine an alternative candidate from the Republican Party today. Yes, former Vice President Mike Pence and a few others may be good candidates, but none of them have that much influence over the broad masses of anti-elite voters. ”
A number of younger Republicans, including Senators Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, and Marco Rubio, are vying for the leadership of the Republican Party. At the same time, Jason Miller, one of Donald Trump’s assistants, recently told CNN that the likelihood of his boss in the 2024 presidential race is 99 or 100%. This prospect is alarming for the part of political scientists who sees in Trump the makings of an authoritarian leader and even compares him to Vladimir Putin.
“As president, Trump seemed to follow the textbook of authoritarianism, and therefore began to resemble Putin. All these techniques are clearly visible to a person who worked in Russia: brick-by-brick destruction of democratic foundations, neutralization of political parties, ”said Fiona Hill, a well-known political scientist and ex-White House analyst for Russia.- It’s just like in the Russian Federation, where the existence of the ruling United Russia party, in general, is meaningless. It’s just a resource that supports Putin. That’s Trump too: he is not that much a Republican … He himself said: “There is no Republican Party, there is me.” This is exactly what we observe in the context of Russian politics . .. And this same desire to stay in power – as endlessly as possible – we see in Trump. ”
In confirmation of these words, Republican leaders in Congress continue to regularly visit for consultations at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.Interestingly, even Trump’s age of 75 is no longer an obstacle to the presidency: after all, his former and possibly future Democratic rival Joe Biden will turn 79 in November.
“If Trump enters the presidential race, I think he will receive the nomination. Republican Congressman Barry Laudermilk said recently. “He had nothing to do with the January 6 events. It seems to me that this is sucked from the finger. And I don’t think his reputation within the party has been damaged in any way. “
A similar opinion is expressed by Laudermilk’s colleague, Republican Congressman Steve Scalize: “Trump wants to help us return the majority in the House of Representatives in the 2022 elections. Enthusiasm for this is today more than ever. And ex-President Trump can really help us.
Democratic lawmakers have not yet publicly responded to talks about Donald Trump’s possible participation in the presidential election. But at the state level, where local elections are held, Democratic leaders say Trump’s name could help rally Democratic voters against him.
“Trump is now, although not so active, his platform and views have become an integral part of the political landscape. And we Democrats have been good at explaining to voters that the stakes are high here, ”said Rusty Hicks, head of the California Democratic Party.
A lot of the fate of the Republican presidential candidates, some political analysts believe, will depend on the midterm elections to Congress next year. If the Republicans are successful at them, then on the crest of this wave, Donald Trump may very well become the sole presidential candidate from his party.
