Mill Valley Resident to Open First Zobha Flagship Store On Miller Ave.

Owned by Mill Valley resident Jamie Hanna, this will be the yoga and active wear brand's first standalone retail store, and will open Oct. 5 in the 30 Miller Ave. space vacated by Showroom.

Zobha, a high-end fitness and yoga apparel store, will open on Oct. 5 in the 30 Miller Ave. storefront vacated by Showroom in February.

The space has been one clothing store after another since Tamalpais Hardware closed in 1986, from Ken Brooks’ Staccato to Red Dot to Showroom.

Building owner Kristi Denton Cohen has been open to other ideas for the space, which is 2,000 square feet total. She even considered a cooperative concept where multiple artists and retailers could share the location, but said Zobha opening is a great move.

“I’m so thrilled to have them in there,” she said. “For me it’s the perfect combination of business.”

Denton Cohen said she thinks the active wear will sell well in the city, and loves that CEO Jamie Hanna is a Mill Valley resident.

While the brand is sold online and in 400 stores worldwide, this will be its first standalone retail store. Hanna told bizjournals.com that Zobha has more than doubled it’s revenue since it opened in 2008, and plans to open several more stores in the Bay area by next year. The active wear market has been identified as a growing industry, and the Mill Valley store will sell the brand’s entire line of clothing and accessories.

Offering luxury yoga, fitness and lifestyle wear, the store is comparable to Lululemon, which has one Marin location in the Village at Corte Madera.

High end leisure-wear. Oh, good. That's something of which MV sure needs more. ON the plus side, more yoga will mean that centered acolytes will undoubtedly be stopping for pedestrians on Miller every now and then.
