Fondren welcomes new business lululemon athletica on Thursday with the grand opening of their Duling Avenue showroom.
Store manager Kyla Weems says they will be hosting a complimentary yoga class at 9am (which is all but full) lead by Butterfly Yoga’s Scotta Brady and shopping hours from 10:30am-8pm. lululemon is staying open late to accommodate Fondren after 5 and fondRUN™ shoppers as well.
Weems says lululemon will have mimosas in the morning and white wine and food throughout the day and night from Fondren Cellars, M!SO and Walker’s Drive-In, saying “Keeping it local is very important to me.”
Speaking of community involvement, the store will send an educator (lulu speak for sales associate) to participate in fondRUN™ and will be donating a raffle item for giveaway.
Reception for the new business has been fantastic, Weems says, from everyone – athletes, die-hard ‘lulu fans’, and even people that have never heard of the brand but are genuinely excited for a new business in town.
The lululemon showroom will only be open every Thursday and Friday from 10:30am to 5:30pm and Saturdays 11am to 3pm. The limited hours are for good reason, Weems explains: “It’s so we can spend as much time as possible sweating in the community and finding ways to support our local athletes and getting to know you.”
