“Something for Everyone?”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Well, it is huge, stocked with everything you might need and then some; on the other hand, if you are an odd size in clothing or wide in the shoes, forget it! There are so many lovely items that are forbidden to anyone who is slightly "off" in body or feet that it is sad. I love LL Bean items: they last forever (I have turtle-necks that I've had for years that never age or wear out) and well worth the money. However, feet widen and oftentimes so do waists, and this store is not geared (pardon the pun) to accommodate. Go if you are young, fit and "normal"; otherwise, just go for the experience, to look or perhaps grab something for a gift (unless you need equipment, since that does not depend on your personal physique).

“Great Place to Walk Around and Shop”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Been to L.L. Bean many times while visiting in Maine. It is a great way to spend several hours shopping and seeing the area. Make sure you stop at the outlet store just down the road from the main store. The pricing is slightly reduced but worth the visit. While in the area, there are many other retail shops to spend time in so prepare yourself for a day of shopping.

Discounted merchandise always a good bet; we made several purchases, mostly outer wear and boots for men and women

“Worth the dough to go ~”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Me and My Mom spent 3 hrs browsing and shopping , and I do not as a rule, like to browse. The service was helpful and polite, the changing rooms very nice, as to a sitting area to wait, and very well organized, clean, and plenty of anything to look at . The prices were reasonable for the superior quaility of the items. As if you are not satisfied with the product, you can return it for another product. There were so many styles and colors of clothing, it was a pleasure to actual browse and shop. We spent a little time across the street at the LL Bean Home shop - which was another entire store. We could have spent another 2 hours in there and next time I will. In the park there was a whole festive feeling as the LL Bean Boot-moble and the Oscar Myer Weiner Mobile was visiting and there was a hot dog BBQ with all the families milling around the LL Bean Park, and a large Bear-Mascot taking picutures with the children.
