Systems Upgrade Causing L.L. Bean Order Delays

Outdoors retailer L.L. Bean says a systems upgrade is causing shipping delays. 

The Press Herald reports that some customer orders have delays up to a week. The Maine-based company says the delays were caused by an upgrade to the retailer's order-processing and fulfillment systems. 

L.L. Bean has apologized to customers in a letter and is offering a 20 percent discount on future orders. 

Carolyn Beem, a company spokeswoman, says the company is working on a solution. Beem adds that orders will be processed even more quickly than in the past once the systems upgrade is stabilized.
