    The employees here are so helpful and so happy to be here. The shoe department sales people were wonderful. The check out registers employees were delightful. A very good experience.  more »

    Super messy and hard to find any real bargains worth my while. Not enjoyable at all. Not for the faint of heart.  more »

    Not the biggest inventory. My husband wanted to buy some shoes but they didn’t have them in the store. A map application would be helpful. It’s a large place  more »

    Their guarantees helps you to get the most of your camping trips. Bean boots add another level of comfort to your hiking and trekking experience. I definitely encourage anyone​ coming to Maine or even from Maine to visit this remarkable store. They also offer great events and guest speakers. The Ben and Jerry's on campus is amazing. Something In May they host The Boy Scouts of America's annual Scout-O-Rama. They are so generous and supportive of scouting. Thank you so much L.L. Bean! Amazing place!

    Ed in the fly fishing department was absolutely fabulous. He was patient and attentive to our needs. Rich helped us with a kayak. He too was very knowledgeable and provided us with several options. We were able to by the kayak we were looking for. We would highly recommend llbean for any of your outdoor purchases.

    No other retailer that i can think of has such a strong customer focus. L.L. Bean stands by their product and their product is excellent. I stopped in today to exchange a pair of hiking boots I had purchased 4 months ago. I hadn't gotten time to try them out, but after two days on the trail, they were clearly not a good fit. Beans not only took them back, but offered to exchange them for a similarly priced pair. The boots that I wound up liking were slightly more expensive but Beans took care of the difference! This is why they will always get my business. 99% of the time you walk out the doors with a product that will last a lifetime, but if anything is wrong, they take care of it.

    Definitely a go to place if you're visiting the coast of Southern Maine. The place is always clean the layout is great period more than outdoor wear and outdoor gear. Quality and variety is very good. Staff is helpful. Nearby shopping and dining is very good as well

    I'd been avoiding llbean for many years, and speed in because it was literally the only place open (24 hours! ) and I needed an outfit for a funeral. I was very , pleasantly surprised by the number of things that I liked! It wasn't all preppy "boat people" clothing. Or clothing for people in their 60s. The color pallet was fresh. And the price range was doable.
