One boycott that doesn’t seem to be working is the one launched earlier this year by #GrabYourWallet that decided to destroy L.L. Bean after reports surfaced that the company’s owner, Linda Bean, donated $30,000 to the Make Maine Great Again PAC.
Now, L.L. Bean is looking to hire an additional 160 workers to keep up with the demand for their classic duck boot.
A new manufacturing center with new equipment, including another molding machine, will help the Maine-based company meet their goal of 750,000 pairs (soon to be a million) made and sold per year.
As with most boycotts, this one with L.L. Bean seems to have fizzled out right after it started, but if you are still upset by a company owner supporting a candidate, or if you just have a case of rabid Trumpitis you can always march on the cold, rainy days yet to come in Sorels.
