Along with its 1Q17 results release on June 1, Lululemon Athletics (LULU) also announced its restructuring plan for the Ivivva segment. Ivivva is Lululemon’s activewear brand for girls. The company operates 42 Ivivva stores in the US and 13 in Canada.

Lululemon plans to operate this business primarily through the digital channel and is looking to close 40 of its 55 stores. It will convert half of the remaining 15 stores to Lululemon-branded stores and operate a select number of Ivivva stores in key areas across North America. The company plans to shut down all of its 16 Ivivva showrooms and other temporary stores. The restructuring is expected to be completed by 3Q17.
