ORWELL — In early 2017 when Andy Buxton became the second generation to run Orwell’s Buxton’s Store, he said he planned to “amp up the deli and meat collection,” become a “destination craft beer and wine store,” and expand its pre-prepared food offerings.

About two-and-a-half years later Buxton has successfully checked those items off the list, and he said, exceeded the store’s financial projections by expanding catering as well.
