“The place to shop in Freeport”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

There are many shops in Freeport, and a must go to store would be LL Bean. Very large store, yes, and easy to navigate to all there other shops from home deco,to cycling and outdoor. It seems there is something for everyone! We visited in mid November and they had there Xmas tree lit outside. We stayed very close and was within walking distance. You certainly can shop until you drop, considering they are open 24hours. Happy shopping!

“L.L. Bean”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

I live and have worked for L.L. Bean and truly consider this store and outlet to be well run, both as an employee and as a customer. Friendly, helpful and will go the extra mile to locate, if possible, what you are looking for including calling the warehouse. Easy return policy.

“Fantastic Store”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

If you are in the Freeport, Maine area, this is a "must see" experience. This store can be overwhelming: however, it is easy to navigate and offers just about any type of clothing imaginable. The staff are very friendly and helpful if needed. We could not find the correct size for my wife's coat and they immediately said they could ship it to us for free. Plan on giving this store plenty of time on your agenda.

“Boots, backpacks, bedding oh my!”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

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.

This is a really big place to shop LL Bean. They have 2 stories to choose from and many clothing options. The hunting section is in this building as well and a restaurant.
