Business Scene for the week of 5/31/17

Inn’s new owners
Colin Birdseye and Shelley Hunter are the new owners of the Feather Bed Inn on Jackson Street in downtown Quincy. They just moved here from San Rafael where they owned and operated a graphic design business. Shelly knew of Quincy having attended Feather River College 40 years ago. “We’ve noticed that Quincy has fallen in disrepair so we plan to help spiff it up and promote Quincy as a destination,” she said. This adorably appointed, comfortable inn features five guest suites and two cottages. Photo by Laurrissa Ballow

SHOPPING FOR A NEW VEHICLE?

If so, you might be interested in knowing you can purchase any new car or truck — any make and model equipped just the way you want it — locally from Jack Brown at Quincy Auto Co. in Quincy. As many of us around here know, Jack has been in the automotive trade for nearly a half century selling both new and used vehicles. During this time he developed close relationships with new car dealers from all over the west coast as an outside broker for their vehicles. Those connections allow him to purchase new cars or trucks to your exact specifications at wholesale prices, which means you get the same (and often less) out-the-door price that you would get dealing directly with that dealership. You also get all of the manufactures incentives and warrantees. Jack makes new car buying hassle free, he offers great trade-in values and financing rates and he’ll deliver it right to your door — any car, any truck, any time!
