Outdoor retailer L.L.Bean is opening its newest retail store at Oakbrook Center on Friday, Nov. 9.

The 17,500 square-foot store features a specially curated selection L.L.Bean's innovative, active outdoor lifestyle gear, apparel, footwear and outerwear and will employ approximately 45 people.

 

The grand opening celebration will begin Nov. 9 and go through Sunday, Nov. 11. The three-day event features giveaways, games, a weekend block party, L.L.Bean's Bootmobile and more.

L.L.Bean has been in the area for 10 years, with stores at The Arboretum of South Barrington and Old Orchard in Skokie. L.L.Bean made the decision to open its latest store in Oak Brook due to the area's proximity to abundant natural resources and opportunities for outdoor activities, as well as a population with diverse needs for being outdoors in all four seasons.

"The Midwest is a great place to be outside and we're looking forward to helping more people enjoy the outdoors year-round," said Greg Elder, vice president of retail at L.L.Bean. "Whether that's on the trail, at the stadium, or in your own backyard, we've got you covered."
