“Santa Monica is an ideal location for us. Not only is it an iconic area of Los Angeles, but it also has a mix of locals and tourists and is home to many of our most loyal customers. I am incredibly proud of the team that brought this store to life and cannot wait to see how consumers respond.”
The retail store opening coincides with the one-year anniversary of Beyond Yoga's sale to Levi Strauss Co, and comes on the heels of the former's successful pop-up shop at The Grove.
