How to Check the Balance on Your L.L. Bean Gift Card or L.L. Bean Email Gift Card
If you’ve been to Freeport, Maine, you know. While late adds Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s are superstores for the sporting life, 99-year-old institution L.L. Bean is the granddaddy of all superstores and beyond compare. If you like to hike, swim, fish, go to school, hit the slopes, sled the hills, fish the streams, canoe the Boundary, pack the pack, dig the shore, head to the cabin, sail the waves, camp the national parks… well, L.L. Bean should already be a part of your life.
Back in 1912, Mr. Bean’s mail-order catalog became well-known when he started marketing hunting wares to out-of-staters who came in for the season. His catalog’s highlight was the “Bean Boot”, or Maine Hunting Shoe, and the boot remains a staple of the company’s outdoor image and remains trendy today.
The original retail store, located at L.L. Bean’s HQ in Freeport, was known as the “outlet” — which now carries a different connotation for most shoppers — and now is a bit of a Mecca for all kinds of shoppers from all over the world. The store brought so many people to town that the area became home to 100s of retail outlets; you can find information and coupons for the latest slew of stores at FreeportUSA.com, the official site of the merchants’ association.
Today, the L.L. Bean flagship store is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. With its “campus” layout, it might be worth a devoting a day of shopping, as you visit different departments in separate buildings. As always, you can count on their quality customer service, free returns, 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, and now, free shipping on any order, no matter the amount you spend.
