Jon Fishman, the co-founder of the band Phish, is re-opening the Center General Store in Lincolnville. Jon, his wife Briar and business partner Ladleah Dunn are shooting for a March 2017 date to open the store at 269 Main St. The Fishmans also run Elderflower Farm which produces beautiful Shetland wool throws, fresh cheeses and organic Maine blueberries. Along with selling regular staples, the General store will offer brick oven flatbread pizzas, a coffee bar and a smoothie and juice bar. The Fishmans also bought an empty house across the street from the store and plan to tear it down to create more green space. The reopening of the store is a step forward for the struggling community and will be open year round.
