Spanish fashion retail group Inditex has agreed to prolong its franchise agreement with local clothing market leader Apranga Group in the Baltic States of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia until 2014

The collaboration between the two companies began in 2004 and the first Bershka store opened two years later in February 2006, followed by Pull and Bear in the same year. These openings were followed by Zara in 2007 and Stradivarius in April 2008. The retailer has so far opened 32 stores in the Baltics.
