Nashua homebrew store will move out of downtown
Jasper’s Homebrew and Winemaking will remain open at its 4 Temple St. location through Saturday, but will then pack up its merchandise and relocate to 522 Amherst St. in the plaza that houses Gold’s Gym.
“We are leaving downtown for our new Amherst Street location for a multitude of reasons, but high on that list are our grievances with downtown Nashua, which include congestion, lack of parking, parking meters, poor visibility, panhandlers and drunks harassing customers, endless Public Works (crews) busting up the streets, rather dramatic crime and a general demographic that doesn’t even vaguely match our clientele,” Walch said in an email to the New Hampshire Union Leader.
When reached by phone on Tuesday, Walch elaborated on his reasoning for the move, citing the need for more space and a loading dock to accommodate tractor trailers delivering merchandise for his business.
“We probably should have moved maybe eight years ago, but you get used to a space, and it is never easy to relocate. We are very anxious to get settled in the new location,” said Walch, adding the Amherst Street facility is about 2,100 square feet.
While Jasper’s Homebrew and Winemaking is relocating to a different part of the Gate City, other downtown businesses recently closed their doors for good. Just last week, Cooking Matters LLC, announced that it is shutting down on Friday after serving sandwiches and soups for 10 years on Main St.
