Woodman's Bids a Fond Farewell to Litchfield
We love you New Hampshire! And it’s with a great deal of love, respect, and happy memories that we announce the closing of Woodman’s New Hampshire location at Mel’s Funway Park in Litchfield. Our Essex, Massachusetts location will remain open for business.
By any measure, Woodman’s of Litchfield had a great run and was a tremendous success. And that was thanks in great part to Mike and Wayne, who ran the place with passion and vision. We owe them a debt of gratitude.
In our time at Litchfield, we were voted the Best Fried Clam in New Hampshire and one of the Top 10 Amusement Restaurants in the United States.
We learned so much and met so many great folks in New Hampshire that it’s very hard to say good-bye, but for a number of reasons – including our desire for a year-round location – this is the right thing for us to do for the company and for the family.
Now please don’t assume that we’re done with New Hampshire forever. We hope to be back in the Granite State someday, and if all the stars align, we will be. In the meantime, don’t forget about our original location in Essex, Massachusetts, which is counting down to our 100th anniversary in 2014!
A very special shout-out to all our New Hampshire employees, who carried on the Woodman’s traditions with such dedication, and to our vendors, without whom we could not have hoped to succeed for as long as we did.
Thank you so much to everyone who supported us, enjoyed our food, and made us feel at home in Litchfield. We appreciate you all, and we hope to see you in Essex!
Doug and Steve Woodman
