This is a guest post by Monica, part of the lululemon Strategic Sales team!
Did you know lululemon is in many small towns where stores don't yet exist? That is part of the work that we do in our Strategic Sales department.
We love small towns! We work with athletically driven businesses like yoga and pilates studios, fitness centres and spas; many of which are in smaller hubs away from big cities. We supply these pre-approved locations with our goods for small town folks to wear while they sweat.
If you are unable to make it to one of our stores, you might be in luck! You never know if a yoga studio or fitness-inspired location near you may carry our gear.
Where did you grow up?
Grande Prairie, Alberta! It is wild rose country and home of the Trumpeter Swan.
What is the thing you miss the most about your small town?
While the lights of the big city skyline can take your breath away, nothing can quite compare to the Northern Lights.
How far is your town from a city
Grande Prairie is located 460 kilometers (286 miles) northwest of Edmonton, Alberta.
How does your small town sweat?
Well, my favourite thing to do growing up was ride my bike through the trails at Muskoseepi park. The trails went from one end of the city to the other.
What is something that you can only do in your small town, and not in a city?
Grande Prairie is host to many annual hot air balloon races. It was so amazing as a kid to go down to the park and watch the balloons being set up and make their way up to the sky. The city would be covered in hot air balloons. A sight to see!
Last but not least, a big shout out to our newest partner in my own hometown – Love Life Hot Yoga in Grande Prairie, Alberta.
