US athleisure brand Alo Yoga is expanding to the UK and opening its first flagship store on London’s King’s Road on November 17 as part of the brand’s retail growth strategy.
The opening marks the first of Alo’s bricks-and-mortar shops in the UK, with the Los Angeles-based brand planning to open two further freestanding stores across London in 2024.
This will include a flagship location on Regent Street, opening in summer 2024, which promises to be the “ultimate shopping experience,” complete with a gym and wellness club for Alo’s VIP customers.
Additional openings in the capital include Brompton Road in autumn 2024, with the brand adding that further European expansion plans are “in the pipeline”.

"There is an incredible yoga and fitness scene in London and we're looking forward to connecting with our community in Europe, through our first retail store opening on the iconic Kings Road. Our retail expansion model continues to focus on convenience, guest experience, and community as we introduce Alo to our newest markets."
