OWLS HEAD, Maine (WABI) - The Owl's Head General Store is under new ownership that hopes to re-open this fall.
Maya Newsam, an Owl's Head native says she wants to bring the landmark store back to life.
It's been closed since 2017.
Newsam says she's heard a lot of encouragement from the community since she bought the building.
And hopes the store will have the same spirit and award-winning burgers.
"I want basically the same exact thing it was before. It's why we all loved it, it was Owl's Head's hub. I want to have groceries, I want to have beer and wine, I want to have lottery, stuff like that. I want it to be for everyone," said Newsam.
Newsam lost her job in Massachusetts during the pandemic and came to back home to spend a little time with her family.
She says she never expected to buy a business in the process.
