We are in the Lifestyle strip mall, which is visible from the main road and identified by a large tall white sail above the superstar. Entering the open parking area, drive all the way to the end of the road and you will see us on your right hand side next to Mythos restaurant, or drive up the ramp, which takes you to the upstairs car park, were you will see a lift on the left hand side that will bring you straight down into our store. We have large umbrellas on the outside seating and are clearly identifiable with our Zaras name.
