Default Haffners-Old Country Store

Demolishing buildings on the corner. Thanks Laconia Daily Sun. What's next for the property. Paper didn't say.
Also noticed Agway is now TruValue. Will miss the Agway name. Big fish swallow little fish.

I believe a new gas station and pump layout are going in that location.
And while True Value purchased Agway, the rebranding I believe is the choice of the owner... which is the same family that owned the Agway.

The corner will still be Dunken and a gas station, larger with better access.

The Agway became TruValue a very long time ago, when the Agway brand went away. While the Agway brand has come back, the store is still TruValue. However we still refer to it as the Agway store. It still carries the same items like grain, seed potatoes, garden tools, seeds, and Carharrt clothing.

Appreciate the updates.
Good to know the TruValue is still family owned.
The Agway name goes back a long way.

Probably changed it to show more of a hardware flair.
We purchased their Home Center, and Tractor Supply opened right next door.

The new store building is larger than the old one. The gas pumps are going in where the old store building was located and there will be more of them - 12 versus the 8 pumps at the old store.

The Dunkin's will have two drive-thru lanes rather than one, one will be a traditional drive-thru lane and the second one will be for pickup for those who ordered ahead online. They will be able to stack up to 22 cars in the drive-thru.

The convenience store will also be there, but I think there was talk about a third business being there - maybe a pizza joint - but I can't confirm it.

The new Haffner's is slated to open in May, and seeing the progress being made I'd have to say May is quite doable. They just finished shingling the roof the other day and have started putting up the stone facade on the outside.

Default Haffner's non-ethanol 91-octane gasoline

So, the Haffner's on Route 25 in Moultonborough has non-ethanol, 91-octane gasoline which is especially good in snowblowers that become dormant while waiting the next snow.

This Haffner's 91-octane, non-ethanol gasoline ..... www.kbb.com/car-advice/gasoline-guide/ ..... costs $4.55/gal and it will make a Troy-Bilt run like an Ariens, the King of Snow.

So, will this new Haffner's in Gilford be selling non-ethanol, 91-octane gasoline or you need to go to Moultonborough, or what?

Hopefully. I run the canned gas in all my power equipment and at $24/gallon it gets expensive.

603 Fuel in Moultonborough has ethanol free. I fill up a gallon and add some Sta-Bil to last the whole summer for my yard machines.

At this point I don't know. It wouldn't surprise me if they do offer it, particularly if there's demand for it. I know I'd use it if it were available.
