To The Daily Sun,
It is with great sadness that I announce that the Gilmanton Corner Store, located at the intersection commonly called 4 Corners, will be closing its doors after Sunday, March 22.
I realize that a store like this is more than just a store. It has become a meeting hall, a lounge, an information booth and a bus stop where people can wait for rides to pick them up. As much as closing the store will leave a hole in my life, I know it will affect many of you as well. It has been an honor to get to know the customers and citizens around town. I will miss all of you, and wish you all the best.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my loyal customers and the townsfolk of Gilmanton who made me feel welcome and a part of this vibrant community. Further, I want to make special mention of my great staff, without whom, I would have probably closed long ago. Mary and Kevin especially put their hearts and souls into the store, and I can never thank them enough for their hard work. All of my staff was great, from top to bottom, and I will miss each of them.
Goodbye Gilmanton. Thanks for the memories.
Owner, Gilmanton Corner Store
