L.L Bean is to open its fourth store in Canada tomorrow (Friday) following its bricks and mortar entry into the country two years ago.
“We are excited about the success of the three stores that have already opened in Ontario as well as the overall success L.L. Bean is having in Canada this year,” said Howie Kastner, President of the Jaytex Group, L.L. Bean’s Canadian partner.
The new store is located in Don Mills in Toronto. Greg Elder, Vice President of Retail and International at L.L. Bean, added: “Following the successful opening of the new Barrie and Ottawa locations, in addition to the number of customers reconnecting with the outdoors this year, we are grateful to our Canadian customers for welcoming L.L. Bean to their communities.
“While we are opening our final store for the year, we look forward to what 2021 will bring for L.L. Bean in Canada.”
L.L. Bean first entered the Canadian market with the launch of its Canadian e-commerce site in late 2018, which was followed by the introduction of a Canada-specific catalogue. Less than a year later, the first retail location opened its doors in Oakville, Ontario.
