Shop L.L.Bean

Founded in 1912 by the fisherman and hunter Leon Leonwood Bean, L.L.Bean has been committed to producing and selling outdoor apparel for over a century. Bean began his business in the basement of his brother's apparel shop in Freeport, Maine. After producing his first catalog (a whopping three pages), he quickly began to grow his mailing list and eventually developed a customer base. Word of mouth was L.L.Bean's most important form of advertising, and a reputation for quality products and impeccable customer service soon began to spread beyond the borders of Maine.

Though Leon Leonwood Bean passed away in 1967, control of the company stayed within the Bean family. The founder's grandson, Leon Gormon assumed the presidency until the early 2000s, when he became Chairman of the Board instead. Today, Gormon's son Shawn has taken over from his dad, making L.L.Bean one of the oldest, most successful family businesses in the country. The flagship L.L.Bean retail store stays open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in Freeport, and it hasn't closed since 1951. In addition to continuing catalog sales, the company has also transitioned into ecommerce over the last decade. L.L.Bean constantly wins awards for its customers' overall brand satisfaction, and it is often listed among the best places to work in New England.
