Internationally recognized outdoor retailer L.L.Bean — best known for its Bean Boot and customer service — will open at 272 Elm St. in the summer of 2018, representatives from The Shops at Yale and Yale University Properties announced on April 24.

“The addition of L.L.Bean will create approximately 60 new jobs in New Haven and will continue to add to the vibrancy and unique mix of national, regional, and local retailers in downtown New Haven,” said Lauren Zucker, associate vice president in Yale’s Office of New Haven Affairs and University Properties. “Yale University’s community investment program supports the growth of New Haven businesses, reinvigorating New Haven’s downtown, creating jobs, and expanding the city’s tax base.”
