Find women's sportswear items like this Skills & Drills tank at Athleta's new U Village storefront opening September 11.

WHERE: University Village

WHAT: Gap Inc.'s sportswear brand Athleta is opening its first Northwest location next month. The store will feature women's apparel and accessories for all things active including yoga gear, swimsuits, and hiking shoes. Shoppers will also find customer-focused extras like a personalized styling service and complimentary hemming. 

U Village is turning out to be the place to pump it up for free. Like another resident shop, Athleta will offer several gratis fitness classes. Their Chicago location currently has weekly Zumba and yoga classes, and even Doggercize—yes, that's right...exercise with your dog. Ask Seattle store reps about what they'll offer once open.

WHEN: Doors officially open at 9 am on September 11. Regular hours will be Monday through Saturday from 9:30 to 9 and Sundays from 11 to 6.
