Made my first visit to the Dollar General in Moultonboro this morning and was pleasantly surprised in a number of ways. They do stock a lot of common everyday items and ( so far) very good prices and there is good variety of things to choose from in a rather large interior. There were other customers, including a few MA students and even a school bus driver.
There is a thread on the Winnipesaukee Forum that began in 2015 and the latest comments are mostly negative and some downright silly, like when the store fails it would become the new Moultonboro Rec center and which selectman would it be named for. One even made an idiotic pun using a play on a current selectman's name.
We will shop there frequently and I am sure many other will as well, and I predict the seasonal crowds and pass through traffic will find it to be a very convenient location.
It's interesting that some will continue to tell us that only seasonal businesses can survive in this area, but here we have a new business that brought some year round jobs. increased tax revenue and fills a shopping niche.
I say best of luck to the owners and I wish them great success.
