I have been frequenting Dan and Whit's sine the 1950's. They have food, wine, hardware, clothes, shoes, feed...they have it all. The place is still heated with wood stoves and the staff is effieceint and Vermonta "friendly".

I have been a customer of Dan & Whit's for many years. It is both an institution and a lifesaver, when you are looking for that elusive item. In fact, the store's motto is "If we don't have it, you don't need it!" It has bailed out many an unprepared workman, who has come on a job without all the... More

I they don't have it, you don't need it. Spend a few minutes wandering around this great general store. Where else can you buy fine California or French wines and horse feed under the same roof?

If you are in the Upper Valley, you must stop here. D & W's is the heartbeat of this little community. Their motto is "If we don't have it, you don't need it." and it fits.

We don't live close enough to stop here for milk and bread on a regular basis but find ourselves here several times a year for this or that. Vermont gifts for friends and family, something for our wood stove, gardening supplies, grabbing something from the cooler on a hot day, or just poking around because we were passing by. Rarely...

Grocery shop, garden shop, clothing shop, toy shop, hardware shop, gift shop, or just browse ... you will find a visit to Dan and Whit's amazingly handy, fun, and a destination in itself! Be sure you take a stroll beyond "the green door" (behind the meat counter and through the paints section) where this has-it-all Vermont general store meanders and... More

Dan & Whit's is a great general store and the heart of Norwich, starting with the overflowing community bulletin board in front. You'll be amazed at the variety of items here, owned and operated by generations of the same family. Some tips to appreciate the store: - Check to see if there are lobster rolls in the sandwich cases -... More

From friendly employees to everything you need or night need, this is the place to go. It is the center of Norwich. I am there almost every day.
