Reny's is moving in to downtown Portland

Pardon my French, but FUCK YES.

Reny's moving to Downtown Portland, opening in old L.L. Bean Outlet

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- When L.L. Bean decided to close its outlet store on Congress Street in Portland, it was a blow to the downtown economy.

But now a new tenant is ready to move into the building, and it is another retailer with deep roots in Maine.

NEWS CENTER has learned that Reny's is going to move into that location.

Reny's is one of the best known retail chains in Maine, but it does not have a store in Portland.

It expects to open the new store on Congress Street by mid-May.

Everyone I've talked to say this was an awesome move as well. I often wished we had a Reny's nearby.
