PORTLAND, Maine — Cooked lobster claws marketed by the granddaughter of Maine retailer L.L. Bean will soon be sold in 750 Walmart stores across the country.
Linda Bean’s Maine Lobster announced the agreement with Walmart on Tuesday. The Portland Press Herald said Friday that Bean’s new Maine processing plant in Rockland has started producing lobster claws with easily removable shells. The claws are being sold in packages containing six to eight claws in 1-pound bags and 10- or 30-pound boxes.
Bean owns five lobster buying stations around Rockland. She started the business in 2007.
