I couldn't quite pinpoint the location, though I'm sure I've been there many times in the 2000's and not realized it
Here is the overhead of that plaza in Hooksett though, maybe you recognize the surround buildings


Also I was right, the photographs are of Hampshire Farms before it became Building 19



Also on the site is the former Alexanders in Lowell, Mass

Wow awesome post, pictures of Hampshire farms!! That brings back so many memories.
The buildings outside the Hooksett shopping center were a video store on the far left and bank. the smaller free standing building was a restaurant now a Shorty's mexican restaurant.

There was a Salem NH Rich's on Route 28 (Broadway) according to a friend who worked at the distribution center in Haverhill, MA.  He never visited the site, however, so I can't vouch for his statement 100%.

There definitely was a Rich's in Methuen at Merrimack Plaza on Route 113.  According to this site Rich's occupied 70k square feet and the space was subdivided three ways after they closed:

I Went to the Rich's in Methuen in 1996, IT didnt close in 1994, as the whole chain closed early 1997.   Why did the one in Salem NH close? where was it?

It was a Doctors office and dentistists office still has a sign on the back of the building. All the windows are boarded up i feel its been so empty so long itll get torn before something moves into it

Alexander's was bought out by Shop n Save/Hannaford in 1990. The picture must be from the late 1980's.

Fantastic set of photos found on the Rochester, NH Facebook page.
Finally some images of a still in business Rich's Department Store. This location opened in 1970.











Here is this site current day.
