LYNDHURST, Ohio- L.L. Bean is opening its first store in Ohio at Legacy Village, the retailer announced on Thursday.

The 16,000-square-foot store is scheduled to open in November and will employ about 100 workers.

“It’s very exciting to be opening our first Ohio store, giving the Cleveland-area residents the opportunity to experience our brand in 3-D. Our stores are where the L.L.Bean catalogs and web site come to life for our customers and we know Legacy Village is going to be a great home for us,” said Ken Kacere, L.L. Bean senior vice-president and general manager of retail, in a statement.

Part of the reason L.L. Bean chose the Cleveland area is because of Cuyahoga County’s natural resources and interest in outdoor activities.

The retailer already operates 22 stores outside its home state of Maine.
