Just need a gun store then call it a day.


Secure_View6740 t1_j96vlft wrote

I forgot to me to mention the on top of a gun store, that plaza needs a fireworks store and a tattoo parlor, then we call it a day .


sheila9165milo t1_j9b1dgd wrote

I work down there. There is a gun store right next door behind it. There is also a tattoo place where the gun shop is. The liquor store moved up the street to the Rockingham Plaza. All within a convenient 1/4 mile radius. The Let's go, Brandon shop two doors down just went out of business, so this is hope.

There actually is a spot in portsmouth with an erotic books store across from a gun buying place.


yamsbear t1_j987z4g wrote

The one in the same plaza as the dance studio?


Curious_Buffalo_1206 t1_j9915fy wrote

The unholy trinity is a church, a gun store, and a usurer (payday lender, title loans, cash for gold, etc). It’s proof that there is no god, because if there was, the goods and services peddled next door would introduce the bloodsucking capitalist parasite to Jesus one way or the other. By choice or by force.

I don't want to hear loud families anywhere I go... so I always say "No" when google asks "is this place good for kids?".

Moonlite Reader is actually run by two of the nicest ladies I've ever met, they could run a preschool.. y'know minus all the ****** and monster ***** and pocket ******* and ***** with the ******* that glows in the dark


ggtffhhhjhg t1_j9alqad wrote

I don’t know how they stay in business considering most people don’t really pay for porn outside of cam women and most people buy their toys online from places like Amazon or Adam & Eve.

Pretty sure preschool nowadays has all the ***** and monster **** and pocket ****** and **** all in the name of rainbow monkey dildo story hour for the kids.

Salem on a Sunday afternoon. You are brave sir/madam.


sheila9165milo t1_j9b1qt6 wrote

To be fair, there is Budget Gas right in front of that, so lots of people, including me, get gas there because they are the cheapest in town (to my knowledge).


Lumpyyyyy t1_j971jfn wrote

Right next to this plaza is an entire “Let’s go Brandon” store. Checking all the boxes.


AmesBeeE t1_j975qty wrote

I drove by that yesterday, it’s closed! :)

Can't feel sorry for him, though. He used to be Cardinal Camera and threw it all away for the Mango Mussolini, so zero fucks given here. He also has some type of military tow behind trailer out front, too, so you know what vibes that gives off.


backohead t1_j97hovp wrote

Afraid to ask but I'm guessing a "Let's Go Brandon" store is some kind of Pro-MAGA store? What do they sell?

A bunch of junk made in Mexico and China, that they somehow think demonstrates their "America first"-ness

Nice a pizza place with kaboobs. How were they?

Amore is great and the owners are some of the nicest people out there.


RunAccomplished6085 t1_j99q96l wrote

I worked at Amore in high school (first job lol!) and the owners are the nicest people. They make almost everything from scratch and give away a lot of free food to seniors in the community.


rudyattitudedee t1_j9cn2cs wrote

I’ve known them probably 16 years working in walking distance. Amore salad with feta and Italian at least twice a week haha. They ended up knowing my whole family by name and would ask how they were or how I was when they went in. I don’t even work in salem anymore and I still try to go often. They met my kid and when he was old enough to “have sweets” she would hook it up every day with her delicious baked goods. She would sneak desserts in for him with notes like every time. So i started tipping fat bc they are too underrated and nice. I worry they loose money just because they are so nice. My family has had them come to parties and they’ve invited us to theirs, their history before coming to America is quite interesting to say the least.


RunAccomplished6085 t1_j9ctd7e wrote

I completely agree- they are TOO nice! I throw money at syrus and run 😹

I worked there back in 2006 so there’s a good chance I made your Amore one of those times.

Everyone in salem needs to visit them despite the other weird stuff in child’s plaza lol

I had a friend work there around 2006, when we were in high school. Are you an 06’ graduate?

Redrum874 t1_j9a92rt wrote

I personally aim to be buried in the cemetery right next door, under the “LIVE NUDE LADIES” sign.


rudyattitudedee t1_j988xu2 wrote

The guy who runs that place used to walk around the store with two 9mms on his hips. He once told me a story about how he had a raccoon problem there and he feed them glass to eradicate them. Very classy place.


RSN1968 t1_j97g0c9 wrote

I was just reading through the comments to see if this one was mentioned. Porn, vape, tattoos, fireworks a pawn shop and comics all in spot.


Able_Cunngham603 t1_j98et30 wrote

This is right next door to the Let’s Go Brandon store.

Salem has always been the armpit of NH.

Oh my God I’m laughing so hard, I totally didn’t get it, even after reading the comments below about Google maps I didn’t see the child’s plaza part for two whole minutes. 😂😂😂

Ahhh Salem, always keeping it classy.


fuzzyfizzy78 t1_j97hgg9 wrote

I grew up in the neighborhood right behind here! I remember it was kind of a big zoning deal when it opened but honestly, the controversy kind of fizzled. There used to be a convenience store there called the Peli Deli, complete with a pelican mascot sign. In the 80s, when i was like 7 years old my Dad used to give me a couple bucks to walk down and buy him a pack of Merit Golds, and any leftover money I could buy whatever candy I wanted. Then I would skip home, hand my Dad his cigs, and go play outside til the streetlights came on. Hes quit 25 years ago and my parents sold my childhood home like 10 years ago. Salem was a nice place to grow up!


sheila9165milo t1_j9b2mnr wrote

Ah, Merit Golds, contributed to my chronic breathing problems of today. I'm 57 quit 9 years ago, but the problems from smoking will last a lifetime and are just getting worse.


fuzzyfizzy78 t1_j9bkvwo wrote

Quitting was still the right choice! Thankfully my Dad is much healthier now since stopping.

Moonlite Reader is a great/non sketch adult store, I buy plenty of toys and props at the Amherst location but I’m sure the Salem store is just as nice. 😉🍆

Let’s not forget the gas station there has some of the best prices in the area.

Childs' plaza is named after the owner of the plaza. It's not because it's a children's plaza... The persons surname is Childs.


tybuzz OP t1_j978slf wrote

That's what I figured, but still a funny coincidence. I've driven by this hundreds of times and only just noticed it. Notable contrast with the whole Tuscan Village with 4k 2br apartments just up the road. Only in NH.

gmcgath t1_j9a1q13 wrote

Moonlite has been there for a long time. I once testified there against a proposed ordinance putting a nonsensical set of location restrictions on stores that sell videos that "constitute sexual conduct." The ordinance passed but the store evidently survived. The thought of a DVD being sexual conduct is weird.

coraldayton t1_j99zh5k wrote

I used to live in Methuen right across the border (literally 3 minutes) and did all my shopping in Salem. I had to think where this was because the sign wasn’t familiar to me since I moved to Arizona in 2021… took me a good 5 minutes trying to figure it out…. Until I saw the license plate for Highline Motors and then I realised where it was.
