How about a dust rag? Seriously dusty in here.

If you live in a large urban area and have reasonable internet service, you will most likely have access to the stuff found in this store. The difference at Dan and Whit’s? Eveything is under one dusty roof.

I found that most of my vacation travel through New Hampshire and Vermont provided me with almost zero cell service and sketchy internet. No big name stores or malls in the area. Therefore, Dan and Whit’s solves problems and fills voids for locals. Can’t beat the super friendly service.

I started up the stairs to the second floor only to turn back. It was getting hotter and dustier. Looks like clothes and boots up there.

On the day we started our journey home, we bought ice, a charging cord for my iPad (broke mine), and ordered a few sandwiches to go. Looks like they have quite a popular to-go food business.

Since they solved all my problems for the day, minus one star for my dust induced sneezing.

Pretty much one of my favorite places on the planet. Country store in small town Vermont with EVERYTHING you might ever need or dont know yet that you need. Motto is " if we dont have it you dont need it"

All the essentials of a grocery store and mercantile but a kid toy section, boots and farmer clothes upstairs, hardware and garden supplies for days (just stride right past the butcher/deli to narnia) and the biggest wood pile and boiler system in the very bowels.

Like pike place market in Seattle under one roof. I live in Seattle but dream about living next door to Dan and whits.

Dan & Whit’s was a highlight of our trip to Vermont. Don’t miss it! Small town America at its best. We went 3 times in 24 hours!

Great general store, and more. It’s a meeting place, and has become the engine of community service with Dan Fraser’s now annual fundraising event for the Upper Valley Haven, “The 19 Days of Norwich, 1% for the Haven”, an effort during the December holiday season, which continues throughout the year.

Dan and everyone is constantly improving the store, from adding fresh pizzas to the great produce section. Nice wine selection, too!

Dan & Whit's is truly unique. Not only can you get food, clothing, hardware, plumbing supplies, sugaring supplies, Christmas decorations, winter toys, gas and many other items, they are also the newest pizzeria in town and serve soft ice cream in warmer weather.
It is great to be able to pull into Dan & Whit's at 7 AM to snag a coffee and a McWhit, the best local version of a breakfast sandwich in the area. You can come back at lunch time and have a tremendous selection of sandwiches, wraps, burgers, hot dogs, etc.
There are many times I have gone elsewhere looking for some particular item, not found it, and on the way home stopped in at Dan & Whit's just to check and they would have the item.
It is a tremendous local institution that is supported heavily by locals and tourists alike, and they support the community in more ways than one can explain in this small space.
Visit Dan & Whit's and you will not be disappointed!
