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 Feature:

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 past.

During the weekend of October 18-22, 2016, members of the Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Much-to-Do Chapter of FFA represented CBNA and New Hampshire at the 89th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, IN. The Horse Evaluation team of Emery Travers, Preston Bethke, Ryan Graeme, and 2016 graduate Molly DeTrude earned third place in national competition.


In the Horse Evaluation event, students evaluate and rank horses based on breed characteristics, conformation and performance. As a team, students cooperatively solve problems related to equine selection, management, nutrition and production.


In addition, 2016 CBNA graduate Sydney Wilson competed in Extemporaneous Public Speaking, speaking on the topic of the impacts of urban agriculture, earning a bronze medal. In this event participants are given 30 minutes to deliver a speech on one of three assigned agricultural topics. Students must learn to think on their feet and develop an argument quickly and persuasively.


CBNA was also represented by NH flag bearer 2016 graduate Mariah Valerio who proudly carried NH’s flag in the FFA Parade and presented NH’s flag at the second general session. CBNA student Hunter Tetu was also in attendance to represent CBNA and NH at the national convention in which nearly 65,000 FFA members and guests from across the country participate in many activities such as general sessions, competitive events, educational tours, leadership workshops, an expo and volunteer activities. It is one of the largest annual student conventions in the world.


The National FFA Expo is the only Agricultural, Food Science and Natural Resource Education Show that brings 47,000 high school students and 4,000 agriculture teachers together all in one place, and all in just three days. No other event can deliver the future buying power of our more than 500,000 National FFA members, advisors and guests.
