Eddie Bauer JacketOutdoor clothier Eddie Bauer has opened a 3,200-square foot store in the just-opened The Village at Westfield Topanga in Woodland Hills, California, which is located just opposite the large Westfield Topanga mall.

“With immediate access to the beach and mountains, there is a strong community of outdoor enthusiasts in the greater Los Angeles area, and there is a greater need for premium outdoor productions that inspire and enable every adventure,” said CEO Mike Egeck in a statement.

The store will feature a full assortment of Eddie Bauer’s men’s and women’s styles, including such new items as the IgniteLite Flux 60 Hooded Jacket, the MicroTherm StornDown Vest, and selections from the Motion activewear line.

In addition, the store will feature numerous educational events throughout the year; in October, it will join American Hiking Society ambassador Elizabeth Thomas for a clinic on hiking in the Topanga area.

Other stores opening at the Village include REI, Athleta, and Sunglass Hut.
