Looks like the new UWS Lululemon that recently opened at 2139 Broadway (at 75th) isn’t making any friends with its neighbors.
Apparently the store has pissed off a local UWS block association by not providing any freebies for an upcoming block party.
DNAinfo has the story of the West 75th Street Block Association’s vs. Lululemon.
I can’t help but wonder if representatives of the 75SBA leaked this story to DNA in order to “shame” Lululemon, although perhaps the details just came out while DNA was working on a story about the upcoming block party.
Anyone have any thoughts on this? Should Lululemon be obligated to contribute something? The store apparently has a company wide policy about not contributing to community groups.
Seems like much ado about nothing, and I certainly wouldn’t crap all over a store about this, but maybe that’s just me.
