Just made our annual pre holiday Bean Trek for family christmas gifts. We were able to go during the week combined with a business trip to the area which made picking out selections with an abundance of inventory ready for the picking! GO EARLY IN NOVEMBER for best selections. Try to arrive early am for close parking near entrances (they are open 24 hours) so their schedule is easily accommodated to yours. Helpful hints : ship items to yourself to avoid paying sales tax, unless your state tax is more than Maine . If you open a cc with them which all sales associates tell you about, you get 15o/o off, free return shipping if need be, especially if you buy a lot of gifts. Or get ideas and wait or the 20 o/ o off sales via emails, but you do chance not getting size or color you want if you wait. This store has it all...from quality clothing, slippers that last for a long time, and now quality upscale clothing in their signature line, from bags to dresses. Service by all staff is alway great and what one would expect from a store around since the erly 1900's. A fun relaxing trip if you go when not crowded. We tried on clothes and actually took pictures with our cell phone of tags to bring back home to family for gifts we wanted for the holidays. As always we heard thre different languages from international visitors shopping while we were there. A no brainier and fun excursion.
