Maine-based retailer L.L.Bean announced last week that its employees will get midyear bonuses and its customers will get free shipping through Dec. 21. "Business growth was healthy and profitability was at near record levels for the season," said Chris McCormick, the company's president and COO in a statement. "Our product offerings have been well received, allowing L.L.Bean to beat the retail trends in our market. This bodes well for business as we move into the fall season."
