New York residents who love the outdoors will want to head to the Colonie Center on Friday, September 14, as L.L.Bean celebrates the grand opening of its newest store at the Colonie Center, Albany, New York.

The grand opening celebration promises fun and adventure for the whole family. The doors will open at 9am, Friday, September 14, and will remain open 24 hours a day during the weekend long event. Night-owl shoppers will be treated to refreshments, live music and giveaways after midnight on Friday and Saturday.

Expert instructors from L.L.Bean's Outdoor Discovery Schools will be offering free clinics, demonstrations and L.L.Bean's popular fly- casting Walk-On Adventures.

Other grand opening activities include The Weather Channel's interactive weather wall, an opportunity to register-to-win a ski vacation to Mount Snow Ski Resort in Vermont, Fun with Bugs with the Albany Pine Bush Preserve, and Butterfly Exploration with Scotia-Glenville Children's Museum.

Bean's new store is approximately 30,000 square feet and built to U.S. Green Building Council's LEED standards. The store incorporates environmentally friendly building materials and fixtures, and utilizes systems and technology to increase energy efficiency, thereby reducing the store's environmental footprint.

It will employ approximately 125 people and offer a selection of high-quality outdoor apparel and gear including hiking, fly- fishing, kayaking, biking and camping products.
