Lululemon Athletica has agreed to acquire the real estate and operations of its franchisee in Mexico, Lululemon Mexico. The Mexican business has 15 stores and has been in business in Mexico since 2017. All employees reportedly will migrate to the new entity.

Celeste Burgoyne, President of the Americas at Lululemon, said in a statement that, "Mexico remains an exciting market for Lululemon.. We believe we are well-positioned to continue expanding in the region."

The brand has somewhat struggled in the rest of North America, but in Mexico the company has continued to grow and maintain double-digit growth. Chip Wilson, Lululemon's founder and CEO, recently blamed the decline on the brand trying to "become like the Gap, everything to everyone."
