PROVIDENCE – Lululemon Athletica Inc., a retailer of athletic wear best known for women’s yoga pants, will open a third store in Rhode Island at Wayland Square.

The space, at 145 Wayland Ave., was last occupied by Alex & Ani LLC and has been vacant for two years. A sign on the building indicates Lululemon will open in winter 2019. The retailer operates stores in Newport and at Garden City Center in Cranston.

Lululemon, now led by CEO Calvin McDonald, is a publicly traded company based in Vancouver, Canada. It reported $2.65 billion in sales in 2018, an increase of 13 percent from the prior year.
