New: West End Guide

Portsmouth's West End has seen a explosion of business activity over the past couple years. Whereas once the area surrounding Islington Street was known for Hannaford's supermarket, The Button Factor and few businesses like Tony's Radio and TV, nowadays it houses more than 100 retail stores, service businesses and small offices, from beer sellers to yoga studios. Recognizing the change, PortsmouthNH.com has added a guide to the neighborhood. See www.portsmouthnh.com/west_end/.
