From “The Office” to “The General Store”

No it's not the name of a new NBC comedy.

Steve Carell, who plays bumbling boss Michael Scott on "The Office," recently bought the Marshfield Hills General Store.

The 45-year-old actor is a part-time resident of the town on Massachusetts' south shore.
He put sister-in-law Tish Vivado in charge.

The store's previous owner, Sherry Bechtold, told The Patriot-Ledger of Quincy that she and her husband, Bob, sold the 155-year-old building and business to Carell after being convinced that he wanted it "for the right reasons."

She said she wanted to make sure the new owner retained the store's character.

What the Editorial:

Well it's better than Kim Basinger who bought a town and then didn't do anything with it or for it! At least he's interested in preserving a little bit of Americana.
