PORT CLYDE, Maine — Linda Bean, 76, granddaughter of retail giant founder L.L. Bean and a major player in the Maine lobster industry, does not plan to sell her businesses in the wake of her retirement.
Bean began stepping back last year from managing her myriad businesses and properties that spread across the state.
“The problem is I’m no longer young. I keep looking up the road to when I am no longer here.”
“I have businesses and properties in several Maine counties, and it is not my intention to sell any,” she wrote in an email this week.
