Three New Stores in Three Weeks – L.L.Bean Arrives in Vermont, Minnesota and Colorado

You think your November is going to be busy? We’ll be opening three new retail stores in three new states – and putting a lot of miles on the L.L.Bean Bootmobile in the process.


L.L.Bean is setting up camp


We’ll start in Burlington, Vermont, where we’ll open our first L.L.Bean Retail Store in the beautiful Green Mountain State. Stop by and see us at Burlington Town Center during our action-packed grand opening weekend, November 7-9.   Next, we’ll open our first MN store in the Mall of America® in Bloomington, November 14-16. We have a feeling that the people of Minnesota are especially going to appreciate the toasty-warm coats and boots from L.L.Bean, just as Mainers have for over a century.

Our new Colorado retail store will open its doors at Park Meadows in Lone Tree on November 21-23. Denver-area shoppers, we’ll have everything you need for your Rocky Mountain adventures – stop in and stock up before the snow flies.

The grand opening celebrations at all three L.L.Bean stores will be full of great giveaways and fun events. Be one of the first 200 customers to arrive on Friday and you could win an L.L.Bean Gift Card worth up to $500. On Saturday, we’ll give away five kayak packages worth up to $500. Snap a picture with the L.L.Bean Bootmobile, learn something new at our free outdoor clinics and be sure to bring the whole family along – we’ll have a special visit from our mascot L.L. Bear and fun kids’ activities all weekend long.


At our new stores, you’ll get the chance to experience L.L.Bean’s legendary customer service firsthand. Whether you’re looking for guidance on the right pair of hiking boots or searching for a local trail recommendation, our friendly and knowledgeable representatives are always happy to help. When you shop at your local L.L.Bean store, you’ll find an assortment of active and casual apparel, outerwear and footwear, a wide variety of outdoor gear, built-tough luggage and classic home furnishings, all backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee. Plus, you can have items monogrammed right on site.


Looking for a new adventure? Check out L.L.Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools®, available at all three of our new retail stores. Sign up for a class, course or tour with our expert instructors, starting at just $20. You can try out kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, archery, fly-casting and more – all gear is included and no experience is required.


After our three new openings this fall, L.L.Bean will have a total of 26 retail stores in 12 states, including our flagship campus in Freeport, Maine, plus 16 stores in Japan. Want to join the L.L.Bean team?  Discover job opportunities here:
