Maine’s popular outdoor retailer is thinking about opening up a store in Burlington, Vermont.

In an email to FOX44 on Wednesday, L.L. Bean spokesperson Mac McKeever says the company has been taking a hard look at the Burlington area, but nothing is set in stone.

“It’s an area we certainly have an interest in, but there’s nothing definitive as of yet,” McKeever said in an email. “I hope to share more information with you in the near-future.”

No word on where the shop would go.

L.L. Bean currently operates 19 retail stores outside of Maine.
