Business Scene for the week of 10/3/18

Outpost’s new owners
John and Mary Roach are the new owners of the Graeagle Outpost. The couple have lived in Plumas Eureka Estates for 21 years. Mary was raised in Clio and her father is a former owner of the Graeagle store, gas station and the Knotty Pine bar. She also worked for the Outpost’s former owners, Tom and Nancy Smith, while John worked for the railroad. The town’s iconic eatery that serves an array of items, including espressos, lattes, cappuccinos, hot dogs and sandwiches, is located next to the Mill Pond across the parking lot from the Graeagle Store.

With the recent and sudden passing of Funeral Director John Fehrman, the family has decided it is necessary to close Fehrman Mortuary’s Quincy, Greenville, Chester, Portola and Westwood offices temporarily while they regroup from their devastating loss. However, they will continue to serve the families they are currently supporting through their time of need.


It only happens twice a year — Evergreen Market’s Meat Bonanza. Store manager Scott McCallum says this semi-annual bulk meat sale this Friday and Saturday, Oct. 5 and 6, is the ideal time to stock up your freezer for the winter with this incredible pricing. They have also added the new Coca-Cola Freestyle Touch Screen soda-dispensing machine. It offers more then 80 choices of flavors for the user to pick and choose from, pairing perfectly with their deli sandwiches and fresh salads. The supermarket is in Greenville.

On Saturday, Oct. 6, from noon to 4 p.m., the Feather River Food Co-Op in Portola is having its annual Customer Appreciation Day. Activities include live music, face painting, apple pressing, food demos, free samples, prize giveaways and more. Just a note: The Quincy Natural Food Co-Op is having its event Oct. 20.


You don’t have to be a golfer to stop by and enjoy lunch at Mt. Huff Golf Course in Crescent Mills. To complement the array of sandwiches, hamburgers and hot dogs on their menu, owner Elisa Rutledge has just added a self-serve salad bar. Diners will enjoy some great food coupled with spectacular views of Indian Valley. Note: Elisa serves her special Philly cheese steak sandwich on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

When I mentioned in this column that Aileen Tavernia is cutting men’s hair at the Downtown Barber Shop in Quincy, I referred to her as a barber. She is actually a licensed cosmetologist, not a licensed barber. I now know the difference.
