GUILFORD, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont country store that closed in 2010 is scheduled to reopen later this spring.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports Marc Tessitore is planning to run the Guilford Country Store and cafe with his wife, Suzanne, with some help from their two children.
A nonprofit group, Friends of Algiers Village, bought the historic Broad Brook House in August 2010. It renovated the building, which sits on Route 5 at Guilford Center Road.
In December, the group issued a plea for a "dynamic entrepreneur" who had a mix of retail and kitchen experience.
Among the applicants was Tessitore. He relocated to Brattleboro from three years ago from New York City, where he had operated a prepared-foods store and catering company for a dozen years.
