    Lululemon Rocked by Murder Set to Reopen

    A Bethesda Row athletic store rocked by murder is planning to reopen.

    Lululemon Athletica released a statement Tuesday saying its Bethesda, Md., branch will be renovated and reopen in the coming months.

    Last month, employee Jayna Murray was found dead inside the store.

    Police say the 30-year-old was killed by her coworker. Brittany Norwoord, 28, has been charged with murder.

    The company, which specializes in yoga and athletic wear for men and women, wrote:

    “Throughout this tragedy, we have been grateful for the overwhelming support and love from the Bethesda community. We remain committed to the people of Bethesda and want to begin the first step to healing together. This will include renovating the Bethesda store and reopening in the upcoming months.”

    The statement goes on to say that the Lululemon will provide updates as soon as they become available.

    Lululemon’s Bethesda store has been closed since Murray’s death. The chain’s Georgetown and Logan Circle branches were temporarily shut down out of respect for those grieving.
