To celebrate the launch of this store, RYU is hosting a Grand Opening event on Saturday April 8th. The public is invited to visit RYU’s newest location where they can partake in on-site workouts courtesy of YYoga and Steve Nash Fitness World & Sports Club, healthy refreshments, and hourly prize draws.
