“Our westernmost store is going to give folks in the Denver area and beyond, many of whom are only familiar with us through our catalog and web site, the ability to touch, see and feel the true essence of our brand in person, just in time for the holiday season,” said Ken Kacere, senior vice-president and general manager of retail at L.L.Bean.
As part of its grand opening celebration, L.L.Bean has commissioned renowned Colorado artist Tim Deibler to produce an original painting of Colorado’s Mount Adams that will adorn the cover of L.L.Bean’s Christmas catalog, one of its largest catalogs, which will be mailed to millions of L.L.Bean customers nationwide. The original piece of artwork will be on display in the new retail store from November 21 to December 19 and during this time customers will have the opportunity to submit their name for a chance to win the painting. The winner will be announced on December 19.
In addition, as part of its celebration into the market, L.L.Bean will be announcing a charitable gift of $15,000 for the noted Denver non-profit organization, Environmental Learning for Kids (ELK). The gift will include a variety of L.L.Bean outdoor gear, as well as a scholarship established by L.L.Bean and ELK that will help get more Denver-area youth engaged in the outdoors and take full advantage of all of the dynamic outdoor recreational resources Colorado has to offer.
The new 13,000 square-foot L.L.Bean store located in the popular Park Meadows Retail Resort will employ approximately 80 people and will feature an assortment of active and casual apparel and footwear, outdoor gear including hiking, fly-fishing, kayaking, and camping products and more. The stand-alone store will have an exterior entrance near one of the mall’s key entrances.
This will be L.L.Bean’s 22nd retail store outside of Maine and its westernmost store. Last month, L.L.Bean announced two additional store openings at Burlington Town Center in Burlington, Vermont, which opened on November 7 and at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, which opened November 14.
