Lorna Jane names the date for Gladstone store opening

LORNA Jane's Gladstone store will open its doors on September 26.

The Stockland Gladstone store will trade from that day, and will host a grand opening event on Saturday, September 28.

The women's sportswear store will be located next to Strandbags in the mall.

The opening coincides with Active Nation Day, which encourages Australians to embrace a regular fitness regime. 

Active Nation Day started in response to research conducted by Lorna Jane and Roy Morgan in 2012, which revealed a
disconnect between our country's attitudes and actual behaviours towards leading a healthy lifestyle.

While 63% of Australians expressed a desire to lose weight, 53% of them did no formal exercise in an average three-month period.
