L.L. Bean plans to hire about 100 employees to work at its newest retail store in New Jersey.

The Freeport-based outdoor gear and clothing company is accepting applications for the Freehold, N.J., store, which is set to open in mid-September. Spokeswoman Carolyn Beem said the hiring will happen in late July and early August.

L.L. Bean has 18 retail stores in eight states outside of Maine, including two others in New Jersey. The company also has 10 outlet stores in four states.

The new 25,000-square-foot store in New Jersey will occupy the former home of a Borders bookstore in the Freehold Raceway Mall.
