This is the catalog, except your not reading it - your in it! The place is ginormous and filled with friendly / knowledgeable staff (they know the products and have actually used them). Worth a visit.

We love to go here every year because we can always find something to bring home with us. We've done this year after year. Finding a book, or slippers, a fishing pole for Dad, some sweaters for the women in your life, or a warm fuzzy comforter for someone's wedding, the kids can find something there to interest them in...

If you like the catalog, you will love the stores. It's ginormous. The customer service is unlike anything else - just phenomenal. I bought more in one hour than I have all year. Lots of good places to eat and rest.

The L.L. Bean flagship store is worth the stop. There are three different buildings, the Retail Store, the Home Store and the Paddle and Ski Shop. The retail store is huge with a massive boot right our front, good for a picture. Parking in Freeport and the store is free. They have everything for the outdoor enthusiast.

I am an unabashed fan of L.L. Bean after having first visited in 1979 where I saw they had no locks on the main store door (open 24 hours). I find it a great place to wander through and look or try on clothes and buy. I rarely leave empty-handed. Take a look at the fresh-water sport fish tank. Chat... More

This was a poor showing for Beans. Never had a worse experience. The associates seemed like they could care less and tired. We were going to ask one a question but they were so rude to the customer in front of us we went to another. On our way to another associate we noticed the same thing happening. NO WAY... More

I met up with a few navy buddies in Maine and went to Freeport, ME. We were told to stop by the L.L. Bean store. The store is composed of several buildings and they have been in business for 102 years. The customer services was the best I have seen in years. The employees were genuine and there to make...

We stopped in on our way north. This place is Impressive. Huge selection of just about any kind of clothing and outdoor merchandise you can imagine. We had a few items with us that we had some issues with. The staff were more than kind and helpful in dealing with our concerns. We bought a number of items and were... More

Excellent experiences at the LL Bean Factory Store. A very big selection in all sections at great prices for the quality. It feels good knowing that the money is more than well spent. Fantastic customer service as well, truly well done in all facets.

The store is humongous, be prepared to allow several hours seeing everything. There a large aquarium which is very interesting. Parking is free, but get there either very early or very late, because the lots fill up quickly. There are seeral other ancillary stores which are located on the LL Bean campus. Be prepared to so some walking, because the... More
