If we’ve learned anything from the past few months, it’s that time spent getting outside is precious. We’ve been cooped up indoors for months and if you’re someone who’s just itching to explore and need to pick up a few essentials, then perhaps a trip to L.L.Bean is in the cards. In fact, the iconic outdoor brand has just announced plans to open three new Canadian stores.
These new stores will be located in Barrie, Ottawa, and Toronto and are all set to open by the end of 2020.
L.L.Bean launched its Canadian e-commerce website in the fall of 2018 and it opened its first Canadian store at Oakville Place in August of 2019.
“The positive response to our first store opening accelerated our expansion plan from two stores to three stores this year, despite the economic downturn,” said Greg Elder, Vice President of Retail and International for L.L.Bean in a release. “We’re extremely grateful to our Canadian customers for welcoming us, and the continued success really speaks to the strength of the brand, the relevance of our iconic products and the kinship we share in the inherent love and care for the outdoors.”
The Barrie L.L.Bean store will be located at Georgian Mall and is slated to open on July 10 while the Ottawa outpost will be situated in Ottawa Train Yards.
The Toronto L.L.Bean location is set to open in the fall and will be at Shops at Don Mills.
“We’re extremely mindful of how and where we grow,” said Stephen Smith, President and CEO of L.L.Bean. “We’re excited to be able to offer our Canadian neighbours more options in more locations around the country this year, and to provide them the outdoor essentials they need to enjoy the many restorative benefits of being outside. We look forward to building on that relationship with our Canadian customers for years to come.”
