This week I had lunch with the owners, Ron and Silvia Skufca, of the new store Track&Field, a Brazilian based company. The store opened yesterday in SouthPark Mall across from the Apple store. The corporate team happened to be in town for the opening and told me a little about their mission and other store locations. They were funny, open and excited about the new store opening.
Founded in 1988, The Track&Field Store produces high-end fitness, sports performance and beach apparel for men, women and kids.
A leader in fitness fashion with more than 120 stores in Brazil, they combine exclusive materials, innovative technologies and stylish designs to create extraordinary active wear–while always adding their signature Brazilian twist.
Inspired by a passion for living a healthy lifestyle, the goal is to empower people of every fitness level to reach their finish line–all while looking and feeling superb. The products feature luxurious fabrics that combine function and fashion for a distinctly different look that you can wear to the gym and beyond.
I am so excited about the store opening up in Charlotte. They are jumping right in and sponsoring a charity yoga event for teens. There are also stores in NYC and LA. The fabrics are beautiful and the patterns fun and eye catching. It is worth dropping by the new store and checking them out for yourself!
