Group officially purchases historic Store at Five Corners. Finding an operator is next task

WILLIAMSTOWN — A nonprofit group that formed late last year to purchase and maintain the historic Store at Five Corners has officially acquired the property on New Ashford Road, and will now focus on finding someone to operate it.

The Store at Five Corners Stewardship Association officially closed on the sale Friday, purchasing the property for $400,000 from former owner Franklin Lewis, according to the nonprofit’s president, Karen Charbonneau. Lewis, who lives in the state of Florida, had owned the property since 2009. The store has been closed since July 2020.
