What’s New in the Monadnock Region

Because I know you’re all eager for news of the Monadnock Region of Southern New Hampshire, here’s some things I’ve noticed:

  • The old Medicine Shoppe drug store in downtown Peterborough is closing now that the modern new CVS has opened on the outskirts of town on the way to Dublin.
  • The Harrisville General Store re-opens on December 12, 2008.
  • The Brown House Bakery in Harrisville has mint brownies that will blow your mind.
  • If you suddenly find yourself in need of a sport coat because you realize that people are serious about the “business dress” for the Christmas party, JC Penney in Keene is an excellent place to go: variety, price, service all good.
  • Still hard to get a cappuccino in a china cup, and not a demi-tasse spoon to be found in the county.
  • The Peterborough Community Theatre — the tiny first-run independent movie house in town — is for sale.
  • The region has gone roundabout mad.

Have you checked out the Hannaford at Keene? There’s a sushi bar that makes the next couple of hours to Albany better. Who knew?
