Default Pier 19

I heard from Randy Parker that Pier 19 has sold. Purchased by a conglomerate.

Default So you mean Randy Parker?

Hi KPW, did you mean Randy Parker of Maxfield Real Estate? Or is there a Randy Walker?

Does anyone know if the underground fuel tank (for boat gas) is still in place or has that been removed since Pier 19 closed?

Tank is still there. In fact, it was replaced shortly before the store closed.

Thanks for the info. Any details on what type of conglomerate, or what the plans for the store are?

I wish Parker Walker would make up his mind. Is he parking or walking?

At least he's not stalking.

I didn't bring it up. The question was asked. Some of the posts were edited so it is a little confusing to follow if you didn't see all the originals.

Cobalt,
LOL, ok, it is hard to follow by me too, with all the political undertones slipping in. No harm, no offense.

Default power

The power transformers for the store are on a pole at the corner of my driveway. This morning, there was a Co-op bucket truck there, closing the pole circuit breakers to power up the store. Something happening - don't know details yet and haven't seen anyone inside. Just have to look at some other time of day.

I'd love to see them put some updates into the ice cream side of things--we loved going there by boat, as it was the closest place to us.

I wonder if the dollar store will be open in time for summer? Very convenient for boating and Camp Belknap.

About two years ago, Dollar General built a new store in Campton next to the Northway Bank on a very steep, river bank, sloping lot that needed a lot of site work to make it happen on such a sloping lot ..... and it happened.

Ashland and Campton both have relatively new Dollar Generals which do not seem to do too much business? Like, why in the whole wide world would anyone want to go to a Dollar General when you can go to a Walmart?

The Plymouth Walmart has some very nice large oranges, as in oranges, grapefruit, lemons for just 50-cents/orange ...... a steal of a deal .... high quality oranges!

Tamworth, Center Ossipee, Moultonborough, and Alton all have Dollar Generals ..... isn't Pier 19 considered to be in Melvin Village in Tuftonboro .... and probably it would be a 365-day, year 'round store ..... Dollar General wouldn't have a seasonal type of a store ....it would have to be open all-the-time ...... a 7-day, 52-week type of a store .... a real business.

See you at the Melvin Village, Dollar General!

Hopefully, it will get painted Melvin Village white ...... so's it will blend, good.

https://rocherealty.com/tuftonboro-n...-realty-group/ ...... $899,000 .... excellent pictures! ..... 1408-days on the market is a lot of days!

Will it have quality tuna fish in cans for $1.39 and excellent, hot, strong coffee for like 99-cents ..... another reason to visit Melvin Village!

Will it rent out stand up paddle boards?

If it does turn out to be a Dollar Store then my guess is that boat gas will be a thing of the past.

I don't believe any of their locations sell gasoline for cars or boats, and I wouldn't think they would start that precedent now.

There are many stipulations for vending and storing gasoline and I just don't think their staffing can deal with it.

But who knows, I could be all wrong (as well as speculation on this Forum that it will in fact become a Dollar Store).

With the short season and only selling gas and convenience items. I cannot see it being profitable with the cost of purchasing the location and the normal overhead. Without selling and or repairing boats it’s extremely difficult

Rumor I heard was there a potential buyer who wanted to convert the store into a restaurant. Not sure if that is who bought it though

Default Pier 19

The store had very limited parking,with most spaces owned by the Condo Assoc. Very hard for any business to make a go of it

With over 15,000 stores and $25-billion annual revenue ..... maybe Dollar General just thought this could be a happening, fun location and said let's do it up real nice as a way to upgrade their public image .... in such a beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee location.

Not likely especially since they have had financial issues in the past. They are not going to open a location without it being profitable

I'm not sure a restaurant could really function there because the septic system requirements for such a business are quite tough. And because it is so close to the waterfront it presents additional challenges.

The footprint there is rather limited so I really don't know if there is enough space for a new septic system (and leach field) or not. I also have no idea in what kind of condition the existing septic system is in (which I believe was put in when Hunters ran the store).

Anyway, that's my thought and I'm confident others will comment.....

The septic system is under the parking lot out back which is owned by the association. In fact, all of the parking area is owned by the association. The well for the building is also on land owned by the association. In addition, I believe the association documents grant the association access to a bathroom in the building.

If that is true hard to find any value in the building except for the association buying it.

I agree it is hard to justify the 1 mil asking price. You are getting the building, the land it sits on, the parking spots directly in front of it. Probably why it has been on the market for over 2 years.
