Have you noticed that Cleveland has been attracting a lot of new retail lately? From local stores expanding their reach to national retailers opening up shop here, our retail scene is booming (and just in time for Christmas)!
This is the 25th retail location in the U.S. for the Maine-based retailer. The store is bright, big, and packed with everything you need to make the outdoors more fun and fashionable. There is also a great stock of holiday items, from ornaments and stockings to gift items for everyone on your list.
My favorite shopping buddy came with me and found a couple things that caught his eye…
Plus, L.L. Bean chairman Shawn Gorman told me that the store won’t just provide you the gear to enjoy the outdoors, they’ll also be planning events such as snowshoeing activities through the L.L. Bean Outdoor Discovery School to help you get out and play.
There are a ton of great events planned for the Grand Opening of the L.L. Bean store this weekend:
Friday, November 13 – The store opens at 9am. The first 200 people through the doors will receive gift cards of varying values from $10 to $500! The Bootmobile will be on hand as well (I met Eddie, the Bootmobile driver, and he’s as awesome as you would imagine a Bootmobile driver would be).
Saturday, November 14 – L.L. Bean’s Outdoor Discovery School will offer free fly-casting and archery lessons, slacklining, and more. Plus, the Bootmobile, of course.
Sunday, November 15 – Kids Day with activities with local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops and plenty for families to enjoy. L.L. Bean has a partnership with the Scouts and the kids this weekend will be earning a special L.L. Bean badge.
Plus, did I mention the Bootmobile?!
There’s so many great reasons to be one of the first guests at the new L.L. Bean at Legacy Village! I hope to see you out there this weekend as we welcome another great retailer to the Cleveland area!
