500 Oberlin Road, Raleigh
Here’s a free get-rich-quick scheme: open a pop-up Lululemon shop just outside the Harris Teeter supermarket in Cameron Village and watch the bucks roll in like sweat during a super-strenuous hot yoga sesh. Located less than a mile from a YMCA, N.C. State’s campus, and a few public parks, this grocery has more gym shorts and yoga pants, spandex and Lycra than a Planet Fitness. Whether it’s young dudes coming in from runs or hoop games across the street, moms shopping post-workout during school hours, or State students stopping in for coffee or cookies after leisurely strolls around the city, Harris Teeter serves as the transitional point between exercise and relaxation. Let’s just hope those floors get mopped often.
