Shop-Rite of Newark is a busy place. The Price Plus card is useful to save on groceries. The staff is pretty helpful and items are easy to find. They just remodeled the frozen food section.
Zingo's Supermarket is a very convenient grocery store in Pike Creek valley, While not a chain, they still have a large selection of brands and the produce section is superb.
I bought my car from Newark Chrysler Jeep and they were very nice. Their service department is good, however, you need to check the job before you leave. I knew I was low on radiator fluid and when the car came out it was still low, I pointed it out to the manager who personally fixed the problem.
My dog attends doggie day care here at Playtime Doggie Daycare. He loves it. ALL the staff are very accommodating, always nice, always friendly, I feel very comfortable leaving my dog here for the day.
I just discovered the Ladies Invited bar during my last visit to Stowe. Fun place to hang out with your friends on a lazy afternoon. I enjoyed the atmosphere here.
Rimrock's Mountain Tavern is a great place to get into a party mood. Music always going or a good football game on the television. Drink specials and good bar food too.
The Backyard Tavern is indeed in the backyard of another business. More a local bar, you are still welcomed with open arms if you are a tourist. An easy walk off Mountain Road,
I have good memories of the Rusty Nail Bar & Grille, Always hopping, always friendly. Good bar food, nice place to watch a football game. A local hangout.
The Whip Bar & Grill is a fun place. I've been here a few times when I visited Stowe. Besides being a restaurant it is a bar that is alot of fun. I'll be back!
The Von Trapp Lodge is just off Mountain Road, very convenient. Well maintained property, great view from the room. Staff was great, room was nice. Also has a restaurant.
