(NASDAQ:LULU) announced today that MIRROR, its popular nearly invisible interactive home gym, will be offered in nearly 40 lululemon stores across Canada and available for purchase in-store and online beginning on November 22. Guests in Canada will now have direct access to engage with MIRROR’s digital community and experience the platform’s best-in-class content for all levels. This expansion in Canada will increase MIRROR’s in-store presence to almost 200 lululemon locations in North America and help propel lululemon’s vision to strengthen its community connection through the platform.
“Community is at the heart of lululemon—and bringing MIRROR to Canada will enable more guests to interact with our growing collective and experience a digital sweatlife offering like never before,” said Celeste Burgoyne, President, Americas and Global Guest Innovation at lululemon. “We have seen rapid growth and strong engagement for MIRROR since launching in the United States and look forward to deepening our roots at home in Canada.”

With best-in-class content and a versatile platform powered by advanced camera technology and a personal performance dashboard, MIRROR extends lululemon’s digital sweat and mindful offerings and community engagement to new and existing Canadian guests.
