Boerum Hill is getting a Lululemon outlet this summer. The upscale athletic store will open on the ground floor of 166 Smith Street, the former Smith Street Bunker that is undergoing a condo conversion. Back when the above rendering surfaced, Lululemon never confirmed its impending retail presence. But a tipster recently noticed Lululemon signage going up at the commercial space, and this article from Well + Good confirms it. They report that this will be Lululemon’s first “full-service” store with in-store classes and weekly run clubs. It should open by June. In the meantime, Lululemon will close its Park Slope location at 472 Bergen Street. According to Well + Good, the Park Slope outlet will hold a goodbye putluck dinner on Sunday, May 18th.
