Friends have always highly recommended this brand for as long as I can remember. I've made a few treks up North while visiting friends in the Northeast. It's quite an amazing store. This store in Freeport is their flaghip store and is open 24 hours. They have clothing, home furnishings, anything outdoors -- gear for fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, boating, you name it, they have it. And the quality is superb. The best thing I love about LLBean is their return policy -- if you're not satisfied, just return it. I remember seeing people bringing back worn clothing or boots and the cashiers would just take it. I've been quite happy with everything I've bought so I've never had to use their return policy.
