It was announced this week that Lululemon Athletica is opening a seasonal store in downtown, Bozeman. The storefront will be in the old Bozeman Angler space downtown, which sadly closed at the end of last year after 24 years on Main Street. This is a big change for the downtown Bozeman community, which is still made up of many locally owned retailers and businesses. And while Bozeman adjusts to these shifts that come as a response to our growth, it is important for us to support the local businesses all throughout our community who put their heart and soul into their work, and our community every day.
