They announced the store months ago but never told us the grand opening date. Well, they just announced it and surprise it's today!

Zara opened their two-level store in Crossgates Mall this morning at 10AM. You can find Zara around the corner from Lord & Taylor. The only Zara I know of is the one in New York City but according to the Times Union, the next closest is at Palisades Center in West Nyack.

I was first introduced to Zara when I studied abroad in Madrid, Spain. Zara is a Spanish clothing company very similar in style to an H&M. They feature clothing for all people and and have dresses, pants, shoes, accessories, and more. I've been looking forward to this opening but it's so strange that Crossgates Mall hasn't promoted it a bit more. According to Wikipedia, "Zara usually selects the best located and most expensive real estate locations in the world to open its flagship stores." I can't wait to check out the two-story location, each story has its own entrance.
