Australia’s Lorna Jane expanding in the U.S.
New York -- Australian import Lorna Jane will open the largest store in its U.S. portfolio, a 3,000-sq.-ft. unit in San Francisco, in February.
The retailer, which specializes in fashionable yoga clothing, opened 10 stores in Southern California in 2012, and is now expanding into the Bay Area. Lorna Jane is also looking at locations in Corte Madera, San Jose, Palo Alto and Walnut Creek, as it looks to open 15 more stores by the end of this year, the report said.
Valued slightly over $13 billion and growing nationwide, the market for yoga clothing and other activewear is the fastest growing segment of the apparel industry.
Lorna Jane operates more than 135 stores worldwide.
