Heritage Corner Market, The Big Little
Convenience Store In Northwood
By Meggin Dail
When you think of
convenience stores you think, run in, run out, forget to buy
milk, grab a Coke and a candy bar, back on the road. Yes, you
can do that at the Market but if you have a minute to look
around, you may want to.
Heritage Corner Market offers so much
more than your average convenience store. Appropriately and
conveniently (there’s that word again) located next to Heritage
Hardware, you have a one stop shopping mecca, dare I say. After
your trip to get your paint, birdseed, Christmas lights, hinges
and canning jars; you can scoot right over to the Market.
At the Market you’ll find some
convenience foods right as you walk through the door; hot NH
coffee, breakfast sandwiches or pizza slices (depending on the
time of day), muffins and fruit. Take a step further you’ll see
the array of candy including chocolate covered pretzels, gummi
bears, wasabi peas, gummy fish and a variety of trail mixes. You
can have a delicious deli sandwich made while you wait (I know,
I have) and while you wait you can browse the salads and meat
counter or watch the in-house baker make her pastries for the
day. Whoopie pies, oatmeal raisin cookies, chocolate chip
cookies and snickerdoodles are no stranger to these shelves.
Back up. A meat counter in a regular
old convenience store? Well, this is Heritage Corner Market,
after all, a location that brims with the history of serving the
fine folk of Northwood and the surrounding towns for decades.
Remember Lester’s? So, maybe you’re new here. Yes, there’s a
meat counter and behind it is Phil, the butcher, ready to answer
your questions and provide you with deli meats, steaks,
marinated chicken and kabobs, sausages and roasts.
Your sandwich is ready but now you’re
thinking you’ll get a little something for later. Some wine
perhaps? There are over 70 labels to choose from. Some local,
all hand-picked varieties you know and love, some you’ve never
heard of but subconsciously, have been wanting to try. Or you
prefer beer and suddenly you hear angels singing from the back
of the store… okay, maybe not, but you do see the beer cave.
Yes, I said beer cave. Craft, domestic, imported, local, you
name it, it’s here, in its own little world of cold.
By this point you should be getting the idea that you have
walked into convenience store paradise. Gluten free pizza, local
milk products, Maple Walnut Bacon ice cream from Jake’s in
Nashua and great prices on big jar spices are all here.
With its fresh produce, cheeses, dips, spreads, frozen food,
snack food, a huge array of condiments and, quite honestly,
stuff you may not find anywhere else, it’s a modern general
store. And that being said, the customer service can’t be beat.
Everyone inside is warm, welcoming and friendly. Whether it’s
tonight’s dinner you need or school lunch for tomorrow or you’re
on your way to a party and want to bring what everyone raves
over, it’s time you stepped inside and shopped the Market.
This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark
1943’s “The Outlaw”
Join Lakes Region Public Access
Television at 10:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday night
(November 11 & 12) for our “LRPA After Dark” presentation of
1943’s gripping western “The Outlaw,” starring Jane Russell,
Walter Houston, Thomas Mitchell and Jack Buetel.
Sheriff Pat Garrett (Mitchell) is
pleased to greet his old friend Doc Holliday (Huston) as he
arrives at the Lincoln, New Mexico train depot. Doc is there to
search for his horse Red, who has been stolen by none other than
Billy the Kid (Beutel). Garrett tries to arrest Billy, but Doc
takes a liking to the young gunslinger – much to Garrett’s
displeasure. Things take a turn for the worse after Billy is
shot and Doc hides him at the home of his girlfriend, Rio
McDonald (Russell). The two soon fall for one another. This love
triangle comes to a head when Garrett needs the help of the two
gunslingers during an Indian attack. But in the end, who will
win the heart of the sultry Rio? And what’s to become of Doc’s
trusty steed Red?
“The Outlaw” has the distinction of
being directed and produced by none other than the illusive
millionaire Howard Hughes, who wanted his film to be the
“Western to break all the conventions of the Westerns.” Hughes
did create a film that is upfront and unapologetic about the
relationship between Rio and Billy, so much so that the Hayes
Office strongly objected to the film’s “racy dialogue and
situations.” Hughes defied the Hayes Code, making “The Outlaw”
the first American film to do so. The movie may best be
remembered as the debut of the gorgeous Jane Russell. Hughes
worked with a Hollywood publicist to turn Russell’s “assets”
into box office gold. The teaser billboards for “The Outlaw”
featured Russell in a seductive pose, wearing a low-cut blouse
while reclining on a haystack, with a caption that read, “What
are the two reasons for Jane Russell’s rise to stardom?” Indeed,
“The Outlaw” is the film that made her a star. So grab your
popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this lusty Western from the
Northwood Student Selected For Professional Nutcracker
