In Spain we use cremallera, cierre sería el cierre de un bar.

O el cierre de una empresa (por quiebra, jubilación, etc.)

Tabién las prendas de ropa o los zapatos tienen cierres, pero nunca si son cremalleras o botones, más bien se usa para corchetes o ganchos.

Interesting. I have never heard the word cierre to mean zipper. It's either
ziper(very frequently used here because of the garment industry) or cremallera. I wonder if cierre is specific to Mexico.

Cierre is used in Central America, so it's not just specific to Mexico.

I can tell you that the word Cierre also is used in Mexico.


For instance.

La tienda esta lista para el cierre definitivo.

Store is ready for the close total.

I hope my attempt in the translation is right.
