Lululemon moving temporarily down the street

No, Birmingham shoppers, lululemon isn't going anywhere. It's just making a temporary move down the street to the former Backcountry North location, while it completes a renovation of its store at 101 S. Old Woodward.

Lululemon, which makes technical athletic clothes for yoga, running, working out and living, has become a staple at the corner of Old Woodward and Maple since it opened in fall 2012. There is also a location at Somerset Collection South, which recently expanded and did an extensive remodel, which is similar to the format the Birmingham store will follow.

Jim Esshaki, landlord for 284 W. Maple Road, where Backcountry North was, at the corner of Bates, said lululemon will move there soon and be there until December. Store windows are papered with lululemon signage.

Inquiries to the corporate office of lululemon were not answered, and local store managers were not permitted to comment on the record.
