Retail Watch

In addition to my random rumor that a roller rink will be moving into the old L.L.Bean outlet location on Congress Street, I would like to hypothesize that a Macy's location will be opening in the space for the holiday shopping season. This morning I spotted a Macy's truck parking a mere 100 feet from the empty retail space. What else would a Macy's truck be doing downtown? And I think Portland could use a few downtown department stores like there used to be long before I was born. 

In other retail news, Trader Joe's is opening October 29th per Munjoy Hill News.
