Cobble Hill is currently in the midst of a mall-store revolution: J.Crew has been confirmed for Court Street, and Lululemon's upcoming location on Smith Street just got an opening date. The brand will open its first full-service Brooklyn store on Friday, June 14th, with a handful of special events for opening weekend.
Free yoga classes will be offered from Friday through Sunday (Friday's is by candlelight), and Brooklyn Triathlon coach Michael Olzinski will lead the Saturday morning Run Club to Brooklyn Bridge Park. The store will also host a farmer's market with complimentary Baggu bags, and guests will be "surprised" with gifts for them to "experience the neighborhood." Place you bets in the comments on what those might entail.
