Shopping in Hanover, NH

Around the Upper Valley they like to say, “They don’t make downtowns like Hanover anymore.” While that’s true, Hanover hasn’t stood still. Stroll through Hanover’s true American downtown and you’ll find locally owned retailers like the Lemon Tree Gifts that features everything from unique gifts to handbags, clothing to housewares, to the Dartmouth Co-op, where every type of Dartmouth accessory is available to trendy stores carrying the latest and greatest. Downtown merchants offer everything from clothing to crafts, stationery to sporting goods, bagels to bytes, jewelry to jawbreakers, copy paper to newspapers, home furnishings to hardware – Hanover has it all.

For life’s practical needs, there are local and national banks, a choice of real estate and insurance agents, barbers and stylists and convenience stores where you can grab a loaf of bread or a pack of gum. The Hanover Consumer Co-op offers two full grocery stores and one convenient “community market.” Each features local farm products and brands, in addition to the big brands you know. Kitchen wares, musical instruments and recordings, opticians and orthodontists and a pharmacy are some of what is within walking distance of Main Street.
