I would like to put the word out that the citizens of Littleton, NH would like to have another grocery store in town.(Not a co-op or another "small" store like Mac's Market in Franconia, but an actual large competitive grocery store) besides Shaws. Competitive being the keyword. Perhaps something like Market Basket, Hannafords or Publix.... Ever since Butsons supermarket closed 10+ years ago we've tried to get another store but have had nothing but problems and are still stuck with Shaws outrageous prices. I could drive 20+ minutes\20 miles one way to a super Walmart in Woodsville, or to Price Chopper in Vermont (same distance) but who wants to do that when gas goes back up or the roads are black ice and full of potholes and frost heaves? No me. The majority of the entire immediate area to this day says "OMG I wish we had another grocery store like Market Basket or Hannafords. I'm sick and tired of shopping at Shaws! I think Littleton is trying to keep other stores out because they never got one." The Co-op has already proved its NOT competitive to Shaws in any way.One acquaintance who has to take her kids for visitation near Concord said " I never shop at Shaws, I go to Market Basket every two weeks." She has 3 kids. But if we had a Market Basket here, would she shop here? Yes, because it's about pricing and convenience. I'm sure she gets sick of taking coolers and ice and freezer bags with her every two weeks! It's true that Littleton can support another store; everyone from Vermont already comes over to shop tax free at our local Walmart, Olympia Sports, Hallmark, Lahouts and plenty other stores. Not to mention vacationers coming up for ski season, to check out Mt. Washington, Clarks trained bears, school vacations, 4th of July, local fairs, Christmas etc. I went to Shaws one day a while back (it was not a holiday) and the lines were all the way to the back of the store! It was a nightmare. So, if any large grocery chains out there are reading this, we'd love to have you come and STAY. By all means, you'd be doing Littleton and its immediate surrounding towns a HUGE favor! I'm sure we'd think we'd all died and gone to heaven if another grocery market larger than Shaws showed up!
