A while ago we told you about plans for an Icebreaker location in the Gold Coast area. For those of you who are unfamilar, this brand creates athleticwear out of fine Merino wool.

DNAinfo reports that the store is set to open in October 2013. Expect to find extremely comfortable activewear at this new store. Who knows? It may give its eventual neighbor, Lululemon, a run for its money.

Even though the line makes products for all seasons, we think an October opening is perfect timing—just in time for the impending winter that'll roll out way soon after.
