Lululemon, the Vancouver-based high-end athletic clothing shop on the stretch of Bergen Street between Fifth and Flatbush and the brand's only Brooklyn location, closed down last weekend.
The yoga gear "showroom" (smaller than most of its other 200-plus locations), was one of the first shops to move onto this block--which is owned by neighborhood uber-landlord Michael Pintchik--after its full-scale renovation into a high-profile, high-rent retail stretch. It's joined by Bark, Bergen Street Comics, a bike shop, a couple clothing stores (including a maternity shop), Babeland, and Sun in Bloom. Pintchik has always been selective in his choice of tenants, and this stretch is as diverse as any.
Storefront space on this portion of the block doesn't open up too often, so it'll be interesting to see what comes into this space next. As for Lululemon, there are eight other locations in Manhattan, and they'll soon be opening a location much further down the street, on the corner of Bergan and Smith.
