Letter To The Editor


Dear Editor,

Does Barnstead need a dollar store? It’s a simple question and one that has many residents concerned. I count myself among them.


Barnstead has always had a rural flavor; a character reminiscent of bygone times. This heritage has been repeatedly expressed in town meetings. Language to that effect has been added to Barnstead’s Master Plan, with the input of our community.


Adding a dollar store on Route 28 will bring no value to Barnstead. These types of businesses are unsightly, adding traffic to an already congested area. We have accidents in that area now. Can you imagine the problems we will have with the addition of this store?


In my personal opinion, adding this type of business does nothing to enhance Barnstead, our tax revenues, our community, or our rural character. What it does bring is more traffic, more possible accidents, an unsightly building, and the beginnings of additional businesses just like it. We have seen what happens in town after town in New Hampshire once that starts. Will that happen to our town?


If you are of like mind, please go to and look up “We Say No To Dollar General” petition. Have the courage of your convictions and sign it. Pass it along to your friends and family too.


Thank you.

Respectfully submitted,

Don Walker
