Bean's used to be really super. Back in the 70's, we'd stop there at any hour of the day or night. We haven't been back for about 30 years, and I understand that a whole new atmosphere has grown up around it. Back then, it was a good place to get a cup of coffee, a dog leash, and the best shirt or canoe in the universe - even if it was 3 in the AM.

I didn't know about William End. From your post, I assume that he didn't produce their fall, but didn't help it, either.

Where would we be without LL Bean and Land's End? I've been to LL Bean in Freeport several times, including once in the middle of the night. Amazing place. Trivia note and true story: in the early 90s, the second in command at LL Bean was a guy named William End. Land's End hired William End away to be it's new CEO. The headline in the WSJ read "Land's End Lands End." End [:)] of story. Unfortunately, End didn't last long at Land's End; he didn't produce the change they were looking for.
