Asana Activewear is closing

Asana Activewear -- a SouthPark retailer focused on fitness, yoga, pilates, and running since 2007 -- will close its doors for good within the next month.

In an e-mail, co-founder/co-owner Gary Schwake wrote: "It was a tough decision, but ultimately the best given the circumstances."

Schwake says the store will stay open for another two to three weeks, during which time he'll try to sell its remaining inventory. Prices are currently 50 percent to 80 percent off.

Also, Schwake said that "the intellectual property of Asana ... the brand, websites (both local and e-commerce) and 5,000-person customer list" are available for purchase. "The structure of the sale will enable the buyer to re-open the store in any location they choose." If interested, e-mail Gary at
