L.L. Bean Can’t Keep Legendary Boots in Stock
Once again L.L. Bean has a supply and demand problem on their hands.
If you needed some new winter boots, get in line. Pairs of Bean Boots are once again back ordered by the thousands. 100,000 to be exact. The Maine outfitter even hired on 100 new workers to keep up with the demand.
Combine the quality of the boots and the 'lumbersexual' style trend sweeping college campuses, the company says they just can't keep up with the overwhelming demand.
Last year L.L. Bean sold 450,000 pairs of boots. This year they plan to sell over 500,000.
