Fabletics to open in Mall of America

Fashion athletic brand Fabletics announced the opening of a store in the Mall of America. Set to open its doors this spring, the 2,000-sq.-ft. space will also carry FL2, a new line of men's high performance athletic gear.

"With more than 40 million annual visitors and an incredible assortment of retailers and entertainment experiences, Mall of America was the clear choice for our next brick-and-mortar location," said Gregg Throgmartin, president of retail for Fabletics. "We will be unveiling a new store environment at the Mall that will offer a best-in-class shopping experience that will introduce our fast-fashion activewear designs and our unbeatable prices to millions of customers."

Fabletics is owned by parent company JustFab, which, after an $85 million Series D funding led by Passport Special Opportunity Fund last summer, is valued at around $1 billion.

The brand was launched in 2013 and offers fashion-forward activewear for women at affordable prices.

"Our retail expansion has been an incredible journey—I've loved being able to connect with customers at our stores. I'm so excited to be bringing our next location to Mall of America," said co-founder and actress Kate Hudson.
