Business Scene for the week of 10/4/2013


With some 30-plus years in the automotive business, Jack Brown at Quincy Auto Co. continues to build on his reputation for finding exactly the right vehicle, virtually any make and model either new or used, for his customers. And, as an auto broker and with the contacts he has made in the business over several decades, he has success in putting together deals that are typically much better than those buyers can get dealing directly with most dealerships. 

His used inventory always looks showroom new and now he is offering a fall special on that same thorough detailing service. For $99 (trucks slightly more), his staff will put your vehicle in that same showroom new condition, inside and out. This is a huge savings over the regular price! The dealership is on East Main Street across from the DMV offices in East Quincy.



Mike and Cathy Simmons, owners of Morning Star Log Furniture, are celebrating their 15th year in business by offering a customer appreciation drawing. All you have to do is come by their showroom and register to win. Prizes include dinners at Drakesbad and The Red Onion, and a log picture frame. In addition, by registering you will receive a ticket stub giving you a 10 percent discount on anything purchased in their store before Dec. 21. The winners will be drawn during the Chamber Mixer (get your costumes ready) at their showroom located near the junction of highways 89 and 36 on Oct. 24.


Join the team at Quincy Natural Foods while they present their own Customer Appreciation Day on Saturday, Oct. 12, from noon to 4 p.m. There will a variety of demos, apple juicing with Transition Quincy team, live entertainment, real farmers on hand to answer questions, some great deals throughout the store — including some buy-one-get-two offers — and a special display of citrus garland veggie art. Looks to be tons of fun for the whole community so be sure to drop in and make sure you register to win several prizes that will be given away.


• Michael Vaughn marks his one-year anniversary as owner of All American Heating, Air Conditioning & Custom Sheet Metal in Greenville. He specializes in high-efficiency heating and air conditioning systems, including hydronic and radiant heating. His motto: “Providing Green Energy Solutions at Competitive Rates”!

• Ron and Stephanie Horton, owners of Les Schwab Tire Center in Quincy, are celebrating their 21st year in business. The Quincy location is one of approximately 450 Les Schwab stores; the company has grown to become the third largest tire dealer center in the United States. The Hortons have grown their business substantially in the past two decades, especially after moving into their present location seven years ago. The extra space made it possible for them to add a state-of-the-art vehicle alignment center and three bays for fast lube and oil changes. And the best part: everything is powered by solar energy via a system they had installed in 2011 that has surpassed their greatest expectations.

• JoAnn Prince, co-owner of Great Northern Hair Co., is celebrating her 52nd year cutting hair. It is also her 35th year working in Quincy and her 33rd year with Great Northern, now located in its new digs in East Quincy next to Papa’s Donuts. Throughout that time JoAnn has been remarkably involved with myriad community activities.
