Bean, open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Freeport has become
"The Shopping Mecca of the Northeast." Over 110 factory outlets
quaintly line the streets of the village.

for value-conscious shoppers during the winter and spring months
-- especially around Christmas -- and no trip to Maine is complete
without a stop in Freeport and a visit to LL Bean. Freeport is the
#1 destination in Maine.
