The Applegate area resident is the new owner of Real Video-Expresso, 462 W. Sanilac Ave., Sandusky.

Cory purchased the business in April, during the final week of the going out of business sale for the store that opened more than 30 years ago.

“When I learned he was going out of business, I reached out to him to see what could be done to save it,” said Cory.

She said the response was great, with the former owner helping out with training, resources and contacts.

Cory said she has retained two employees, Jessica Paterson and Hailey Osborne, and added her daughter, Whitney Sharpe, to the staff.

Cory, 52, studied business, business law and accounting in college. About nine years ago she wrote a business plan to open a coffee shop in Port Huron that never transpired.

Now, that long-time goal of opening a coffee shop is closer to reality.

Cory plans to turn part of the store into a café with donuts and bagels and “incorporate the video” business around it.

“It’s been my dream to open a coffee shop,” said Cory.

Real Video-Expresso is currently operating on spring hours, Monday- Thursday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m., and Sunday, 12-7 p.m.
