Roy's Market
In 2004, Peter Robinson purchased Roy's Market and Roy's II in Peterborough, New Hampshire, from his uncle, Albert Roy, and his wife. Roy's Market, a staple of the community, has been in the same location on Main Street since 1938. Long-term employees Noel LaFortune (54 years), Phil Burt (47 years), and Dwight Jarest (40 years) are well-known by every customer.

Roy's II, separated by a row of parking spaces from Roy's Market, is a smaller store providing grab-and-go convenience alternatives. Peter recently added a kitchen in order to introduce more food service and home meal replacements. No preservatives are used in their freshly prepared items. They also have a hot breakfast and lunch business and plan to add their own line of organic salad dressing.

In January 2010, Roy's Market was remodeled and 70 percent of the equipment replaced. New, green technology was used in an effort to be more environmentally responsible; to date, power consumption has been cut by 15 percent. The storefront was also updated. With the help of AG New England, the entire remodel was completed in just five days.
