The Granite State's first mall was located 4.2 miles north of the Massachusetts State Line, in sales-tax-free New Hampshire. It was one of many Woolco-anchored, mid-tier malls built across the United States during the 1960s and '70s. Mass-based Almy's co-anchored the facility. Their NASHUA store was the chain's ninth branch.
