Brooklynites will be treated to another option for athletic clothing shopping this week, as Lululemon will be opening the doors on a Williamsburg this Friday, July 21st.
Located on North 6th Street, the store is over 2,000 square feet, and the space’s aesthetic was largely inspired by the neighborhood’s local architecture, art, and entrepreneurship. Inside, the decor will match much of the surrounding area—restored brick walls, peg board details, and more. There will also be a communal table, created in collaboration with Sweatshop (an Australian-based coffee shop and eatery located a few blocks over on Metropolitan Avenue).
Lululemon has also placed roots locally, partnering with several local business owners and operators as store ambassadors. These include Mike Reynolds, coach and co-owner of Crossfit South Williamsburg, Marc Daigle, an instructor at Flywheel Sports, and Summer Rayne Oakes, the founder of Homestead Brooklyn.
The store will celebrate its opening this weekend with libations throughout the day, and local DJ Debbie Attias will be spinning 1:30-5:30 on Saturday.
The brand has also partnered with The William Vale Hotel to produce a series of fitness classes that will run—free of charge—until the end of August. Classes include yoga, HIIT, Pilates, and more. The rotation of classes will all take place from various outdoor spaces around the boutique hotel, and all will come packaged with a fully-included primetime view. This class will be held this Saturday, from 10-11; you can RSVP here.
