L.L. Bean is closing the Tysons Corner Center store that heralded its national expansion next month.
The anchor store at the Tysons mall will close Jan. 17, company officials tell Tysons Reporter.
“This decision was not an easy one, and though we worked with the landlord to explore many options, we were unable to reach favorable terms in a way that would allow us to best serve our customers moving forward,” company spokesperson Amanda Hannah said in a statement.
According to the newspaper, the region’s large fan base of the flannel and outdoor brand was a driving force behind the decision to open a two-story, 76,000 square-foot store in what was then known as Tysons Corner.
Hannah stated that the company looked for other space in the mall but couldn’t reach a solution. She wrote the company is actively looking for a new location in the area.
L.L. Bean notified staff in the summer, offering severance and other opportunities within the company.
Hannah wrote that the company “could not reach an agreement with the landlord that met our desired store format and needs.”
A representative for the mall said there’s no information to share on who might be going into the space.
