Popular yoga-wear retailer lululemon, which has maintained a holiday-season store at Eastview Mall for the last two years, has agreed to become a permanent tenant.
According to Wendy Roche, marketing director for the Wilmorite mall, lululemon stayed on after Christmas but will be moving into a store that had housed Bath & Body Works. That store is in the Sears wing — as is the seasonal store — but closer to the Starbucks near the mall’s central entrance. The space is currently being renovated and is expected to open this spring.
Bath & Body Works, meanwhile, has temporarily moved to the Von Maur wing while it waits for its old space to be renovated for lululemon; it will take over lululemon’s seasonal space once that is also renovated.
In the midst of this big swap, Happy Earth Tea Company, started in Rochester’s South Wedge, has opened a Leaf tea shop at Eastview Mall as well. “We’re really excited to have them here,” Roche said.
The internationally recognized tea will be available in a store in the Sears wing near Pandora and Swarovski.
