After inventing the Maine Hunting Shoe, also known as the “Bean Boot”, avid outdoorsman, Leon Loenwood Bean, founded his company in 1912 as a retailer of quality outdoor gear. Occupying the same location for more than 100 years, the LL Bean Flagship Store is the largest and first LL Bean store. Bean was the first retailer to implement the “100% satisfaction guarantee” which remains in effect to this day.
While LL Bean is most famous for its outdoor gear such as camping equipment, fishing gear, casual sportswear, and of course, their world renowned shoes and boots, there is truly something for everyone at the Flagship Store. Here, you can also purchase souvenirs, gifts, scented pillows, pure maple syrup, cookbooks, and much, much more.
