Cardin’s Flint Hill General Store inched toward oblivion in late May.
After an unsuccessful attempt to auction the store in October, owners Wesley and Jo Ann Cardin were ready to close shop, shuttering a legacy that has been carved over decades.
But the fortunes of the store changed dramatically when Jan and Richard Ashby walked through its door.
The couple now owns the small country store, and expects to take full control as early as next week.
