Given that Cosi has previously announced that they were shutting company-owned stores like the 700 King Street location, news like this was only a matter of time.
Dust off your yoga mats, Alexandria. Lululemon Athletica is coming to town.
The purveyor of high-end yoga pants and other workout gear has signed a lease for 700 King Street, according to Norman Jemal of Douglas Development Corp., which owns the building.
The 8,500-square-foot space is a corner storefront on one of the busiest corners in Old Town Alexandria: The intersection of King Street and Washington Street. It’s currently home to a Cosi, which is planning to close.
Lululemon — they of last year’s transparent-yoga-pants-gate — is expected to open sometime in the summer or fall of this year, Jemal said.
