Steve Carell from The Office and Little Miss Sunshine (and The 40 Year old Virgin) has recently made news by acquiring a mom and pop general store.  According to Luxist, “Carell bought the Marshfield Hills General Store in the small Massachusetts village of Marshfield Hills. Carell called the purchase more of an “emotional investment than a business one.” He wanted to preserve the store as a gathering place and sense of community. The Boston Globe reports that Carell learned the store was for sale last fall when his sister-in-law Tish Vivado went to California to visit Carell and her sister, actress Nancy Walls. Vivado lives in Marshfield and will be running the store, which is now under Carell’s ownership. The Globe quotes Carell as saying that he may run the cash register and stock shelves in the summer months.”
