“Unique shopping experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Checked out LL Bean at Christmas and loved the many Christmas lights and trees on the grounds outside. Between the main store and the home store near the big boot, we saw an amazing Christmas tree light show synchronized to holiday music. Notice the absence of door locks going in since Bean never closes. In the stores, there is clothing, housewares and accessories of all kinds. The pond stocked with fish was appropriate in the outdoor gear section. Although the prices are a bit more, the quality and service is very good. I was able to trade in an older worn out LL Bean jacket for full price credit on a new one. This place is worth checking out.

“Nice But Pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

The store was very nice and the Christmas decorations were beautiful. We didn't care for the prices though. What's offered for sale is nice, although I think there's a great deal of outsourcing, but many things just don't warrant the price tag. That was the only disappointment in our visit.

“Balsam & Fir scented air...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2012

Woodsmen, upper elevation person or simply love the experience of shopping for the outdoors- this is your place. Indoor home decor for that rustic look, country chime. Switches up as seasons change, most attention paid to winter / cooler months.

“Freeport is Great, and LLB makes a great destination”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

If you're in the market for outdoor gear or wear, the LL Bean store is the largest selection I've seen anywhere - and that includes the Pac NW, Alaska, and a good portion of Europe. Expect the usual Bean prices, but there are plenty of bargains to be found as well. Plan at least a couple of hours to browse and look at the displays; there are plenty of vendors outside for a nosh afterward.

“Everything one needs from head to toe. Great warranties too!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

This is an amazing store. Variety of items for all. The employees really strive customer satisfaction, without attitudes!! There are several Bean stores on the campus. The flagship store, kids store, ski and bike too. If you need to find a unique holiday gift this is the place do find it.
