We drive down from Brewer Maine quite often. We prefer the Flagship store over the outlet store. Prices are not really that much different. The Flagship store has way more variety. The only thing that we don't like is that the " friendly and helpful staff " is borderline obnoxious. We couldn't just wander around in peace and be left... More

The LL Bean factory store is conveniently located across the street from the flagship store. They had countless products offered at a discounted price. However, the sales weren't that far off from their regular prices. I found my ultra light down jacket from this store and I absolutely love it! Worth a stop.

I have a few quick observations on L.L Bean. We live close enough to go there relatively often. #1 Years ago a woman I know went there with a friend ,bought a number of items ,paid cash for them, put them down within the store and forgot them. The receipt was in the bag.When she remembered, they were gone from... More

We find many great bargains at the LLBean store. We bought our grandchildren their gloves plus my husband got his boots, jacket, and pants for winter, too. We went home very happy.

I believe this shopping attraction appeals to any outdoors person. They have kayaks to coats and everything in between. I found their clothing store to be well laid out but a bit on the pricey side, However, their products are extremely well made and should last for many years.

We took the scenic route on Hwy 1 and found our way here. Since we already own most of what they have we went to just browse the isles. They do have everything you'd need for a weekend camping trip or a month long hike through any part of any country! And to "boot" they have a large replica of... More

This is heaven for outdoorsy people! They had everything I wanted exactly in my size, although I did have to pop over to the kids section for pants- but that's genetics and not selection. I highly recommend stopping here while traveling through Maine, especially since it's so close to Portland. Also the staff here is so personable...shopping was actually fun!

Shopped at LL Bean in Freeport and had a wonderful experience. There was so much to choose from, and all items their usual high quality! The sales people were extremely helpful and friendly. Best of all -- I shipped everything home in Tennessee without paying shipping expenses or taxes. Typical Bean experience!!

Just took two dress shirts back to Bean's and they were exchanged with no hassle. These shirts never have to be ironed and they look crisp and fresh right out of the dryer. I also bought a new pair of Salomon hiking boots. They are light, dry, and wearable right out of the box. I shop at Bean's because if... More

As an Aussie I encountered L L Bean when in the U.S as a student 45 years ago. So when back in the area we visited about four stores on the East Coast. The Freeport store just was amazing being on three levels and covering a huge area. But, with the Aussie dollar hovering around 69 cents to the U.S... More
