Mexicali Blues is opening in Kittery, Maine.

Mexicali Blues announced the excitement on Instagram:

The moment you've all been waiting for...WE'RE OPENING UP A NEW LOCATION!  We're thrilled to announce the opening of our new Mexicali Blues location in Kittery, ME, at the end of this summer!

Maine's Mexicali Blues has an incredible story.

It started with a love of music (Grateful Dead, to be exact), a passion for travel, and a wicked devotion to fun. Owners Peter and Kim Erskin started a tiny store in Portland with their three kids in 1988, with things they picked up in their travels. Now, they are about to open their sixth location in Maine!

  • Portland, Maine - since 1988
  • Newcastle, Maine - since 1996
  • Raymond, Maine - since 2004
  • Freeport, Maine - since 2007
  • Bangor, Maine - since 2011
  • Kittery, Maine - since 2024

Hippie isn't an insult at Mexicali Blues. It's a way of life.

To make the new store a reality, they want to hire in all areas, including a key retail manager position. They've got some pretty cool incentives,

Join our team and enjoy free clothes, fun people, good pay, and great benefits. Plus, earn up to a $1,000 sign-on bonus!

I love this place, and if I didn't already have a full-time gig, I'd let my inner hippie shine!
