Visit Annalee’s NEW Location!
339 Daniel Webster Highway
Meredith, New Hampshire
For decades, Annalee Dolls has been an iconic stop for those exploring Lake Winnipesaukee and the surrounding Lakes Region. It is here where the Annalee legacy began more than 80 years ago. New ownership early in 2015, brought about new and positive change for the local business. Besides many internal system and equipment upgrades, ideas for a new location were put into motion. It was important to the Annalee team to remain in their beloved town of Meredith, New Hampshire. Finding the perfect spot took time and after a few dead ends, managers discovered a diamond in the (very) rough- the old Ford dealership on Daniel Webster Highway in downtown Meredith! Once renovated, this easily accessible location will provide ample space for all operations, gift shop and warehouse. For the past few years, the majority of shipments were managed by a fulfillment center in Maryland. It was important to the team that this part of the business was brought back to Meredith and controlled internally. With everyone on board, renovations began in February 2016 and by June the warehouse was in place and shipping orders. The rest of the operations followed with a move in the middle of July and the new Gift Shop opened its doors to the public on July 16th. Now that the corporate offices, design studio, gift shop and 20,000 square foot warehouse are all under one roof, the Annalee team can provide better service and enhance the customer experience. Shoppers can enjoy watching the designers at work in their state-of-the-art design studio. There is also plenty of room to host future build-a-doll events that attract people from all over New England. They may be a small team at Annalee Dolls, but they have BIG goals for continuing Annalee Thorndike’s legacy in bringing quality, handcrafted gifts and decorations to people across the world!
The new location is at 339 Daniel Webster Highway in Meredith, NH. Open daily from 10am to 5pm year-round. For more information call 603-279-3333 or visit www.annalee.com
