Oakville Place’s new tenant, L.L. Bean doors opens on August 25, 2019. The 13,000 sq ft store takes over the recently vacated Pusateri’s.  On opening day the first 100 people in line receive an exclusive offer.

L.L. Bean entered into Canada in late 2018 with the launch of a Canadian specific website. The Canadian catalogue launched in late June. Also L.L. Bean will open up unique shops inside specific Hudson Bay Stores across the country.

We will no longer pay duty or use US dollars.

“We’ve had a long, meaningful relationship with Canadian customers for decades…” said Stephen Smith, President and CEO of L.L.Bean. “As a Maine-based company that shares a lot of commonalities with our northern neighbours, we’re eager to be infusing a bit of the Maine essence and L.L.Bean brand into the Canadian market.”

Oakville Place Wins Again

This is another win for Oakville Place RioCan. Loosing Sears was a blow to Oakville Place, and the second major set back happened when Pusateri’s shuttered its doors in August 2018.

However, it has steadily bounced back. The Sear’s location renovation has divided the vacated space into 4 sections. The construction is well underway, and most of the space has been leased.

New Tenants

  1. Goodlife Fitness plans to open in December 2019. It first location opened in 1979.
  2. Buy Buy Baby is another U.S. Retailer. The store will not only include the typical coming home necessities such as cribs and strollers. but will also have items that support parents as their child grows. The stores plans to open in late 2019 or early 2020.
  3. PetSmart which has an other location in Oakville at 403 and Dundas. The opening is scheduled for Early Fall 2019.

Another new tenant will be STACK Restaurant that is known for Southern BBQ. They’ll be catering the L.L. Bean opening, so you’ll be able to have a taste of what’s in store at Oakville Place.
