QUÉBEC, Dec. 18, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ – Cominar today announced the grand opening of Bamboo Underwear’s pop-up store. The company, founded last August by four young entrepreneurs in Québec, currently sells its products in over 40 countries thanks to its online store. Among the founders of Bamboo Underwear, who include Jules MarcouxPhilippe Ouellet-Thivierge and Mathieu Landry-Girouard, is Élisabeth Rioux, one of the most renowned Québec influencers in the world. She has over 1.7 million followers on Instagram and is the president and founder of the swimwear brand Hoaka Swimwear, which is a huge success online.

Bamboo Underwear is one of the most important players in the industry. It is a brand of underwear for men and women made using bamboo. Several high-profile influencers are associated with the brand thanks in part to the quality, comfort and softness of its underwear.

Because of the unprecedented growth of its brand, Bamboo Underwear chose Cominar to meet its customers face to face. The company’s founders decided to make their first brick-and-mortar appearance in their hometown of Québec City. The pop-up store will be located at Place de la Cité, situated at 2600, Boulevard Laurier. The founders will meet their customers exclusively on December 20 and 21, 2018.

“Bamboo Underwear is now part of a group of Québec-based companies, including Womance, AllCovered and Plantzy, that have entrusted Cominar with their pop-up stores in one of our shopping centres. We are thrilled to showcase online businesses and participate in their growth,” said Ms. Caroline Lacroix, Vice President of Cominar’s Communications and Marketing.
