L.L. Bean will open its first retail store in Canada next month as the company expands its business in Maine's northern neighbor.

The Maine-based retailer, which is known for its cozy outdoor essentials like Scotch plaid flannel shirts and Irish fisherman sweaters, announced it's nearly ready to open its new 13,000-sq-ft store in Oakville Place, just outside of Toronto on August 23. It will be the first Canadian store in the company's 107-year history. L.L. Bean has also launched a Canada-only version of its mail-order catalog with duty-inclusive prices and a Canada-only website.

It was only previous year that company officials said they were looking to expand into our northern neighbors' territory. Their venture into the great north will be a little different, as they have partnered with Toronto-based Jaytex Group on the L.L. Bean-branded stores.
