Update II: Locals seeking outdoor and sports wear, rejoice. Lakewood-based Geiger's opened in downtown Cleveland yesterday, and today retail giant L.L. Bean swings open at Legacy Village. 

The new store is located near L.A. Fitness and Soma Intimates in a sprawling 16,000 square foot facility.

While the Legacy Village location is the company's first Ohio store, a second L.L. Bean outlet is slated to open in Columbus next week.

Update: L.L. Bean is, in fact, looking to fill some 100 positions for its Legacy Village location.

Now through Oct. 8, the outdoor goods and apparel giant is accepting online applications for a handful of positions — from snow shoe instructors to merchandising.

Interviews will be held the following week at the DoubleTree in Beachwood, WKYC says.

Sadly, we didn't see any Bootmobile Driver position listed.

Retail giant L.L. Bean announced last week plans to open its first Ohio store at Lyndhurst's Legacy Village.

The outdoor goods and apparel retailer — known among millennials for its rubber and leather boots — is slated to claim the current Talbots storefront this fall; Talbots will relocate within the Legacy compound.

“It’s very exciting to be opening our first Ohio store, giving the Cleveland-area residents the opportunity to experience our brand in 3-D," Ken Kacere, L.L. Bean's senior vice president and general manager of retail, said in a press release. "Our stores are where the L.L. Bean catalogs and web site come to life for our customers and we know Legacy Village is going to be a great home for us.”

The new store is expected to generate around 100 jobs; we certainly hope Bootmobile Driver is one of them.
