Does LL Bean ever run sale/clearance?

I've been checking out a few of the kayaks LL Bean carries and am wondering if they ever have them on sale or clearance.

Check LLBean Outlet Stores|

I saw this late spring some kayaks on sale that were at least 30% off normal price in a local LLBean outlet. Not on the web, so it's a walk-in thing I suppose...
Not that it helps...|

But I know they have some pretty good sales at the store in Freeport.

... here in the DC area (Tyson's Corner) has had great sales on their kayaks but it is a walk-in thing, as you suggest. I was really tempted last fall to pick up a boat that was on sale for almost half-price! I think it was a WS Tsunami 135 or 160 or something like that. To this day I can't figure out why I didn't go ahead and get it!
yes they do|

both at the outlet stores and at the flagship store in Freeport---if you recieve the print catalogue you should also be on their e-mail list and recieve some notice of these sales---if not, call them (number is on their website) and tell them you want to recieve the catalogues.

Eastern Mountain Sports is currently running a kayak sale with free shipping and 20% off accessories. Also a $25 "gear bucks" card if you spend over $125. I got five cards when I bought my kayak. They carry Wilderness Systems, Necky, Ocean Kayak, and a couple other brands. Some with rudders skegs, some without.
Yes, but they're not advertised well.|

They do go on sale and occassionally clearance, but you kind of have to just know about them.
Why would they...|

They hae enough yuppies & Richie Rich's to buy the overpriced crap they have. Why would they hae a sale for the common folk when he common folk can buy the same thing (without the L.L. Bean logo) for less elsewhere.
You apparently know...|

The next state below us??? Otherwise I get their catalog all the time in the mail... All "L.L. Bean merchandise", all "high cost". The only low cost items are the un-needed gimmick crap.

Just email them and they will tell you when the sales are...the email address is on the website.

has a clearance sale usually in September and they have a far better selection of boats than LL Bean.
Might also try|

Kittery Trading Post---about 60 miles south of LL Bean along Rt 1 in Kittery---I was there last sunday and they seemed to have a much better selection of boats then Beans which I looked at an hour later.
