Despite this corporate silliness, LL Bean opened its
Columbia store in May of
2001, a few months after Tysons Corner. This Sunday, after twelve years selling khakis and canoes to HoCo locos, the Columbia store will close. By midsummer the
30,000 square foot building that housed them will be gone, replaced by a new
plaza and a reopening of the old main entrance.
