Business Scene for the week of 10/26/2011


carey candy co. on the move

How sweet is this? Carey Candy Co.’s new home will soon be the former Quincy Appliance Store at the corner of Bradley and Lawrence streets. Compared to her present location on Main Street across from Plumas Bank, this new spot is huge, which excites owner Amy Carey even more. She has some “sweet” plans to expand her offerings — gift items, ice cream, fudge and a special “make your own gift basket” section — in the future so stay tuned. In the meantime, expect her to be moved and ready to go in late November.

 

speaking of new homes

Cal-Sierra Title Company continues to make improvements at its new location at 295 Main St. in Quincy, next to Quincy Natural Foods. Some of the more noticeable enhancements include new plants for the planter boxes in front, beautiful staining and refinishing of the park bench on Main Street and resealing and striping in the parking lot. “We will continue to improve and maintain the property as a contribution to community esthetics. We would like to welcome everyone to stop by and see us in our new home,” said owner David Windle.

 

earns her certification

Congratulations to Gabrielle Bondon, a Chester High School graduate, for earning her nail technician certification from Marinello Beauty School in Redding. She has joined the team at The Cutting Edge salon in Chester.

 

september’s donation huge

We’ve written about this a few times over the past couple of years: For every gallon of gasoline or diesel fuel sold at Mohawk Trading Co. in Greenville during the school year, owner John Papenhausen donates one cent to Greenville High School. Thanks in a large part to his loyal customers — and, of course, tourists stopping there for gas — September was a busy month at the station. Their sales were enough to amass a fruitful $500 contribution that he decided to split between the high school and elementary school. As we all know, our schools can put contributions of any amount to good use these days, so keep that in mind next time you need gas.

 

continuing education

Kory Felker, MPT, owner of Plumas Physical Therapy in Quincy, along with his physical therapy assistant Julie Christensen, are furthering their education in the pediatric physical therapy field by taking courses through the American Physical Therapy Association. Kory is also finishing his manual therapy education, a hands-on approach to therapy incorporating massage manipulation and mobilization. Julie is also taking a special course on kinesiotaping, which involves special techniques used to properly tape athletic injuries.

 

we’re still lighting candles…

Mary Cheek, CPA, is celebrating her sixth anniversary. From her location at 130 Willow St. in Chester she offers accounting services for individuals, businesses and nonprofits. She is ready to help get your taxes ready and filed. Mary is also a notary public.

 

Al and Katherine Templeton are celebrating their 10th anniversary as owners of the Cedar Lodge and RV Park near Chester. The facility, located a little more than a mile west of town, offers guests front door access from their accommodations to their quads, snowmobiles, cross-country skis and the like. The Lodge is nestled in a wooded, park-like setting with a variety of clean, comfortable rooms. They also have RV hook-ups and a heated seasonal pool.

 

Just two years ago Julie Rohrs and Ken and Dorinda Hess opened the very successful Main Street Coffee Bar on Main Street in Chester, next to Coldwell Banker Real Estate. In addition to assorted coffee drinks, they offer fresh baked pastries, breakfast sandwiches and a nice selection of hot and cold sandwiches and hearty soups for lunch.
