Dan & Whit's General Store
Ranked #3 of 6 things to do in Norwich
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 7, 2013

It is not possible to really categorize this place because calling it a "General Store" doesn't do it justice. It really does sell everything, from groceries (including very good local beef) and hardware to clothing and shoes, small appliances, garden and hunting supplies, toys, kitchen gadgets, etc etc. If you think you've seen it all when you walk the first floor perimeter, think again. The "back" of the store is many times larger than the front (go through by the meat counter) and there is an upstairs for clothing and shoes as well. Dan & Whits is a local gem and us locals wouldn't know how to manage without it. Open 365 days/year although only half-days on major holidays.

A step into the past a general stores with all of the busy activities and personal interests that are a delight to everyone that visits. No comparison to the generic grocery store of the present generation. Love this place

Dan&Whit's has been a stable go to store for everything for yrs! iIf they don't have it you didn't need it. Fun place to explore, buy the locally made Maple Syrup and Maple Candy, not to mention winter wear, Tee Shirts with logo's, local and International Newspapers. It was my daily stop when I lived there. loved It!

I grew up in Norwich, so I spent a lot of time in Dan & Whit's before and after school. On a recent trip back it was so nice to see it really hasn't changed. There's still smiling friendly faces behind the meat counter, the floors still creak in throughout, and you can pretty much find anything you're in need of at the moment. Prices do run a bit steeper than if you went to West Lebanon to pick up groceries or fuel up on gas - but hey, gotta support your local business.

We should have known when the whole front of the store was covered in ads and scraps of paper that it wasn't what we thought it would be. I wanted to straighten up the items on all of the shelves. Yes there were many, many items, but it is a hodgepodge of everything, I wouldn't drive out of my way to see it. There are many other country stores that were more organized than this was. Sorry, that's how we felt.
