About two miles from Dartmouth College stands The Norwich Bookshop.  For fifteen years, this store has been an integral part of the community.  Three seconds in the store and it’s easy to see why.  The Norwich is just a great place to spend time.  In fact, it seems like the customers who were in the store were there visiting as much as they were browsing.   

Owners Liza and Penni run the operations and work closely with schools and even Dartmouth, to host events offsite or in the store.  This is a comunity driven store and the selections–once again–are tailored to community tastes.  There is a large children’s section on the 2nd floor.  There is also a large selection of sidelines here.  They also offer free wrapping.

Working hard to be a part of their community, Liza and Penni stress the importance of personal service and handselling.  It’s easier when you are friendly wirth your customers.                                                                                                                                           P1000785

Their location has also helped this store in that they’re across the street from a school and only doors away from the post office, a bakery, and a wine store.  Aah, Vermont!  The Upper Connecticut River Valley.  It really is idyllic.
