Known worldwide for their collection of boards, shoes and associated gear that goes along with it, Vans has been a desired brand since the mid-90's. And while there have been stores throughout the state of Maine that have been certified Vans retailers, the company has never had its own dedicated store in the state...until now.

The Maine Mall shared on their Facebook page last week that the first Vans store in Maine was officially open. Located in the wing adjacent to Best Buy and J. Crew, the Vans store will feature everything you would expect it to feature. Boards, shoes, tees and everything else that Vans is known for.

Are there any other brands that don't have any retail locations in Maine that you'd like to see? Let us know on our Facebook page.
