Business Scene for the week of 3/27/19

LOTS OF REASONS FOR THEIR SUCCESS…

Dig It Construction has been in business since 1998 serving the entire region that covers Plumas and Lassen counties and beyond. As a young man, owner Caleb Holland saw an opportunity to start a business in the industry he knew and loved. As he continued to dig in, his hard work was rewarded with great success as his company continued to grow — far exceeding his expectations. While he mentioned that one of his biggest challenges is the work force, as it is these days for so many businesses. Caleb said that he is grateful for the skilled and loyal crew, many of whom have been with the company for 10 – 15 years. He added that the first employee he hired is still on his team. Caleb said loving what you do and being good at it, working hard and a strong team equals great success.

Slusher Plumbing, headquartered in Chester, has been serving their customers’ needs throughout the Lassen, Plumas and Tehama county regions since 1980. David and Connie started the business and their son, David Jr., joined the family business in 2003. Their business offers an array of services for both residential and commercial projects that include plumbing, heating and cooling, electrical and sewer and septic services.

And for 23 years Cheryl and Bob Reinitz have been the hardworking owners of Forest Stationers across from the courthouse in downtown Quincy. For those that may not remember, when the couple purchased the business it was simply your traditional office supply store, and today it’s so much more. Cheryl and Bob have done an incredible job finding just the right product mix to fill what was both a needed and welcomed niche in the community. That includes an amazing array of carefully selected gift items, jewelry, novelty items, purses and so much more — with more being added on a regular basis. So, when you are looking for that perfect gift — or office supplies — be sure Forest Stationers is one of the places you visit.

Barbara and Scott Tanner have been the proprietors of Scott Tanner Business Equipment for 23 years. They service and sell an assortment of copiers, fax and laser printer machines and supplies throughout Plumas, Lassen, Sierra and Modoc counties.

SUMMER HOURS BEGIN

The Bargain Boutique Fine Thrift and Gifts goes back to its summer hours Monday, April l. Customers will find them open Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Kudos to volunteer staffer Sally Nichol for the curtains she made for the store. They really go well with the new paint and the store’s overall revitalization.

POCKET $50 AT OPEN MIC NIGHT!

Here’s something that promises to be a fun and entertaining series of evenings. Beginning Saturday, April 6, and continuing the first Saturday of every month it’s Open Mic Night at The Drunk Brush in downtown Quincy. The wine lounge’s owners, Riccardo and Wendy Jacobus and their manager Barbara Newman, along with the show’s emcee Erin Roth, invite you to share your talent — whether it’s singing, playing an instrument, a comedic or magical act, or perhaps juggling flaming torches, if that’s your gig — with the best act of the night walking away $50 richer!

BINGO, TACOS AND TRIVIA

It’s always a busy events calendar at the Main Street Sports Bar & Lounge in Quincy. Tonight, Wednesday, is bingo from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. presented by the Main Street Girls Against M.S.
