CARR JOINS THE FLANIGAN TEAM
After a formidable 32-year career with California State Auto Association as their Quincy insurance agent, Stan Carr decided it was time for a change and is now working for the Flanigan-Leavitt Insurance Agency. In addition to the auto and homeowners policies he sold, Stan said he is really looking forward to being able to offer clients a full choice of insurance products that will now include business insurance, commercial auto, workers compensation, professional liability and group benefits. With the vast insurance market access that this change brings, Stan will be able to offer many choices to the customer for both their personal and business insurance needs. “We’re excited to have someone like Stan with his experience make the choice to join our team,” said Mike Flanigan. Stan, licensed in both California and Nevada, will work from the Quincy office serving Plumas, Sierra and Lassen counties.
carey candy co. on the move
How sweet is this? Carey Candy Co.’s new home will soon be the former Quincy Appliance Store at the corner of Bradley and Lawrence streets. Compared to her present location on Main Street across from Plumas Bank, this new spot is huge, which excites owner Amy Carey even more. She has some “sweet” plans to expand her offerings — gift items, ice cream, fudge and a special “make your own gift basket” section — in the future so stay tuned. In the meantime, expect her to be moved and ready to go in late November.
