LL Bean to resume 24-hour operations at Freeport flagship store

The pandemic has hit businesses in Maine hard. Even giant companies have had to make changes they never expected. Maine’s LL Bean flagship store hasn’t had locks on its doors since 1951, but that has all changed as COVID-19 wreaked havoc on our way of life here.

The store had to shit, modify, and adapt like so many other New England businesses have. A little over a year ago, locks were installed on the doors and the building closed temporarily. After the total closure, the store finally reopened with limited hours, shifting away from its decades-old “24-hour” operation.

According to Maine Press Center, The huge LL Bean flagship store in the heart of Freeport will resume 24-hour operation starting this Monday. Also from Monday, the Home & Bike and Boat & Ski stores will extend their opening hours from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Shawn Gorman, Executive Chairman of LL Bean, said:

“My great-grandfather opened our flagship store over 100 years ago, and in 1951 he implemented our 24-hour operating model as a way to welcome the sportsmen who were passing through Freeport in the middle. overnight to ensure an early start the next morning. The return to 24-hour service, extended hours and the opening of new stores all mark milestones for our organization and communities as we move into a post-pandemic era and see continued interest in the full. air. “
