An integrate Case Analysis on Zara clothing stores
Zara clothing store is one of the largest international fashion business. It belongs to Inditex a large distribution company. Zara is a manufacturing business that also exports clothing. It handles manufacturing, distribution, and sales of clothes using extensive retail network.
Zara being an international business is bound to experience communication issues and at the moment, they cater for English and Espanola speakers.
They have a wonderful human relations activity they call ‘JoinLife’. In Join Life, they collect unused clothing from their customers at their stores or even from the clients home and donate it to people that need clothes directly via The Red Cross, Salvation Army, Caritas, Redress and Oxfam. Unfortunately, the collection is only done in Spain.
Their intercultural relationship with their wide network of retails all over the world may be threatened by communication, but they do their best to employ people who can both speak their Zara language and the client’s language to defeat intercultural issues.
On ethics basis, Zara is doing a tremendous job not only by donation to the needy but by saving the environment through recycling wool and cotton of fabrics no longer needed. For the environment, they have collaborated with a company called Lenzing to create a fire that is a combination of wool and cotton called REFIBRA that is acquired from sustainable forests. The company also helps them to recycle cotton so that they are not too dependent on the natural environment.An integrate Case Analysis on Zara clothing stores
