SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - The first L.L. Bean store in the Tri-State opened Friday morning at The Kenwood Collection off Interstate 71 and Montgomery Road.

The first 200 people through the door are receiving gift cards worth up to $500.
This is the first L.L. Bean store in Cincinnati and the third in Ohio.
The 15,000-square-foot store has everything from active and casual wear and shoes to outdoor sporting goods.
Store operators are holding a three-day celebration for the grand opening.
There will be free fly casting and archery lessons by experts on Saturday and a kids day on Sunday.
The new store also is bringing jobs to the region by hiring more than 100 employees.
