One of Quincy’s iconic businesses, Sweet Lorraine’s, has been owned and operated by Gary and Bee for 13 years. This popular lunch and dinner house on Main Street in downtown Quincy is known for the consistently remarkable food Chef Gary prepares putting his unique culinary touches on every single dish, whether it’s his sandwiches and daily lunch specials or his mouthwatering steaks, seafood and pasta on the restaurant’s classic dinner menu.

It was 40 years ago that JoAnn Prince opened Great Northern Hair Co., in Quincy, only to be joined later by her daughter Grace Ann Prince. You will now find them in a new location at 117 Redberg Ave. in East Quincy, just a block or so away from where they were on Highway 70. Although they have downsized the retail operation a bit, they still do hair and nails, have a tanning bed and carry hair products.
