The lululemon athletica concept store holds relevant, vibrant events and programming authentic to Bend.
The Bend Local space provides a community hub and retail space for lululemon’s technical athletic clothes for yoga, running and working out. Lululemon hopes to inspire customers with community-driven activations and partnerships that focus on sweat, personal development and relationships.
Founded in Vancouver, Canada in 1998, lululemon is a yoga-inspired, technical athletic apparel company for women and men. What started as a design studio by day and yoga studio by night soon became a standalone store in November 2000.
The vision was to create more than a place where people could get gear to sweat in, lululemon wanted to create a community hub where people could learn and discuss the physical aspects of healthy living, mindfulness and living a life of possibility. It was also important for lululemon to create real relationships with guests and understand what they were passionate about, how they liked to sweat and help them celebrate their goals. Today, lululemon does this in stores around the globe.
lululemon designs for yoga, running, cycling, training and most other sweaty pursuits for women and men. The designers are athletes and sweat-minded people.
A constant that has never wavered is lululemon’s desire to empower people to reach their full potential through providing the right tools and resources, and encouraging a culture of leadership, goal setting and personal responsibility. lululemon’s core values of quality, product, integrity, balance, entrepreneurship, greatness and fun are lived by their staff every day and are at the heart of their unique company culture.
