International outdoor goods and fishing tackle retailer L.L. Bean has announced plans to expand its footprint in Canada with the opening of three more stores in the country this year.
Greg Elder, Vice President of Retail and International at the company, said the positive response of its first store opening last year has accelerated its growth plans in Canada. “We are extremely grateful to our Canadian customers for welcoming us and the continued success really demonstrates the relevance of our iconic products and the kinship we share in the inherent love and care for the outdoors.”
“We are extremely mindful of how and where we grow,” added Stephen Smith, President and CEO of L.L. Bean. “We are excited to be able to offer our Canadian neighbours more options in more locations this year and to provide them with the outdoor essentials they need to enjoy the many restorative benefits of being outdoors.
“We look forward to building on that relationship with our Canadian customers in years to come.”
The company launched an e-commerce site in Canada in the Fall of 2018, following it up with a Canada-specific catalogue and the opening of its first store in Oakville, Ontario in August last year.
