WOOLROOM IN QUINCY TO CLOSE

Due to health issues, nationally-known designer Medrith Glover has decided to close her Quincy business, Woolroom. She has been in business for 35 years and teaching local knitters all that time. She conducted annual Knitters’ Retreats for 20 of those years. Beginning June 4, Medrith says she will only be open on calendar date  days “divisible by four” between 1 and 4 p.m. where she will be offering closeout prices on all yarns, books and needles.

BUSINESSES ON THE MOVE …

Make note that ER Energy Propane has moved its offices into a new location, but in the same complex on Highway 70 in East Quincy. Great Northern Hair Co. had formerly occupied that spot but has also moved (see next item below). ER’s manager Dutch Morrison and his crew are very happy with the move that gives them considerably more office and shop space.

Leah moved here 11 years ago from East Texas and attended Feather River College, taking business management courses. She then worked at a local nonprofit as its emergency services coordinator for housing and homeless. Away from the office, Leah enjoys camping, hunting, fishing and spending time with her son, Chase Rainey, a sophomore at Quincy High School.

GREAT NORTHERN MEANWHILE…

You’ll find JoAnn Prince and her iconic Quincy business, Great Northern Hair Co., in its new location just a block or so away from where they were on Highway 70, now at 117 Redberg Ave. in East Quincy. Although she has downsized a bit, she still does hair and nails, has a tanning bed and carries hair products.
