Hot Shopping: Look Fit and Fine in lululemon

The newly renovated lululemon store in Westboro.

Yoga lovers, runners, and anyone who is looking to stick to their New Year’s resolutions should make a beeline for lululemon. This Canadian store made a name for itself with athletic apparel for men and women that is both fashionable and functional. Head over to the newly renovated Westboro location to stock up on hot products like the “Destined for Greatness Duffel,” the breezy “No Limits” tank, and other great gear for your sweaty pursuits. Two locations, 340 Richmond Rd., 613-761-1839, and Rideau Centre, 50 Rideau St., 613-230-6633.

Canadian Roots

Roots is an internationally recognized brand with an iconic Canadian history. Their logo incorporates the beaver, the furry creature that appears on our 5-centroots-tee09 coin and Parks Canada emblems. The first Roots store was established in 1973 by Michael Budman and Don Green who were inspired by Ontario’s Algonquin Park. Their company transformed a love for the Canadian wilderness into the distinctive leather goods and athletic wear you see today.—RM
