FREEPORT (AP) – A new retail development in one of Maine’s busiest shopping districts has received more commitments from national retail chains despite the weak economy.

Berenson Associates, a Boston-based shopping center developer, plans a May opening for Freeport Village Station, a 120,000-square-foot center across the street from L.L. Bean’s flagship store.

The center will have more than 40 outlet stores, restaurants and a parking garage.

Berenson Associates said Monday that Coach Factory Store, Pac Sun and Sunglass Hut national chains will open stores in the center. So will The Maine Dog gift store and Linda Bean’s Perfect Maine Lobster Roll restaurant. Other tenants include Calvin Klein, Izod, Nike, Brooks Brothers, Van Heusen and L.L. Bean.
