Thanks Bob and Cheryl for giving us such a terrific place to satisfy our shopping needs and gift giving options.

BUSINESSES ON THE MOVE…

Cravings Café, Espresso Bar & Bakery in Chester will be closed for a couple of weeks while it moves from 150 Main to 278 Main in the iconic Stover Landing Commons building.

In the Commons, shoppers will find a unique shopping experience with a café, espresso bar, bookstore, art gallery, business center and more.

Certified Massage Therapist Sharon Geney has moved her business, A Balanced Touch, to 244 Main St. in Chester — suite B in the Kehr O’Brien Coldwell Banker building.

Watch for her upcoming workshop on self-care.

Shoppers will now find Mountain Custom Framing & Gifts in its new location on Main Street in Old Town next to the Elks Lodge. In addition to providing custom framing for all types of art, owner Becky Weatherson says this new, spacious showroom and custom framing studio is not only a showcase for local artists, but for her extraordinary selection of unique cabin décor and gifts items,  lotions, soaps, gourmet teas and more.

As the Old Town Mercantile consignment store in Westwood approaches their second anniversary, local hosts Marty and Diane Growdon tell us they moved to a larger location right next door to their current location at 317 Birch St., inside the historic Young’s Market building. The new location has been remodeled and is now similar to an open-air country market for their local artists and crafters from Lassen and Plumas counties.
