New operator plans to reopen Robie’s store in Hooksett soon
Tom Walsh is overseeing a small crew of workers who are fixing up the store, which he said is merely upkeep and not part of a grand design to change the store.
Robie’s, which is on the state and national historic registers, has been a regular stop of politicians both on the local and national campaign trail. Walsh, who is also a state legislator representing Hooksett and a member of the planning board, said that Robie’s presented a perfect opportunity for him both as a businessman and someone who loves Hooksett.
Riley agreed, adding that the opening of a Bass Pro Shop in town will make Robie’s a much more visible business in the future.
“This is going to become a much more active corridor with the Bass Pro,” Walsh said.
“This way people can just come in, grab their lunch and be on their way, so if they want to be in and out they can. But we will still have traditional diner food that you can order as well,” Walsh said.
“Not just to make sure everything is running great, but also because I love this place, I love everything about it,” Walsh said.
