WESTCHESTER, ILL., Jul 28, 2022 – Follett Higher Education, North America’s largest campus retailer, today announced the launch of a new brand partnership with Beyond Yoga. This fall, students and campus members across 29 Follett partner schools will enjoy access to branded apparel products from the popular activewear brand.
“Beyond Yoga is known for its incredibly soft, high-quality materials, and we can’t wait to bring these women’s athleisure products into campus stores for the upcoming school year,” explained Meredith Crowder, senior buyer for women and children’s apparel at Follett. “Students, faculty, staff and the surrounding community of these schools will be able to showcase their school pride while maintaining both style and comfort – it’s a win-win!”
Follett’s General Merchandise team has partnered with Follett On-Demand - a premier provider of online store solutions for institutions and athletic departments across the country - to decorate the Beyond Yoga apparel with the institution’s brand. These licensed Beyond Yoga products, which include women’s tops and bottoms made in the USA, will be exclusive to Follett campus stores.
“Follett continues to be the leader in bringing in new brands to the collegiate market. We are thrilled to partner with Beyond Yoga to provide this new, exciting product to our customers,” said Follett’s Chief Merchandising Officer, Chad Phillips.
Beyond Yoga is the latest to join Follett’s ever-growing assortment of premier athletic brands, supporting the continuing trend of versatile apparel that can be worn while lounging, working out, heading to class, attending athletic events and more. While the launch of Beyond Yoga will be limited to select campuses, the brand will be expanded to even more campus stores throughout Follett’s 1,100-location network in the future.
