"The nearest Target is an hour away, and the nearest Bed Bath and Beyond is an hour and fifteen minutes!!" How ever is one supposed to move into a new place without these two staples??  I remember hearing those distances and thinking our move to Tuck would be a nightmare.
Imagine my surprise when we discovered just how much in the way of shopping is actually quite close to campus (most within one town of Hanover).  Allow me to create a mall-like directory for you to demonstrate all that exists:

  • Groceries: Shaw's, Price Chopper, and Hannaford (all in West Lebanon); three Co-op food storesbetween Hanover, Lebanon, and White River Junction; not to mention the multitude of seasonal farmers markets
  • Home and Kitchen: Main Street Kitchens in Hanover, Hanover True Value, Home Depot, Walmart, Kmart, Pier 1 Imports, Sears, BJ's, Board and Basket, Joann Fabrics
  • Retail: J. Crew (coming soon to Hanover!), Gap Factory Outlet, Kohl's, JCPenney, TJMaxx, L.L. Bean, Talbot's, Payless Shoes, and Hanover boutiques like Bella and Indigo
  • Electronics: Best Buy, Staples, Verizon Wireless, GameStop
  • Office: Staples, UPS, CVS
  • Outdoors/Sporting goods: Mountain Goat of Hanover, North Face, Eastern Mountain Sports, L.L. Bean, Golf and Ski Warehouse, Stateline Sports
  • Pets: West Lebanon Feed and Supply, Lebanon Pet and Aquarium Center
  • Seasonal/costumes (costumes are big at Tuck): iParty, Costumania  

Prior to coming to Tuck, Will and I had only ever rented apartments in mid-rise buildings, which meant we'd never decorated the exterior of our place for holidays.  Now that we're past Thanksgiving, the seasonal decor is coming out up here and I wanted to take part!  Needless to say, I was fully able to find everything I needed among the above retail options to decorate the front porch smile
