WINTER TIRE CHANGE OVER DEAL

Ron and Stephanie Horton, owners of Les Schwab Tires in Quincy, tell us they are having a huge early season snow tire sale and changeover sale. Through the month of November they will be offering special package pricing to replace your existing tires with snow treads for both commercial vehicles and passenger vehicles. See their ad in this paper for this special pricing.

FACTORY AUTHORIZED CLEARANCE

It doesn’t happen all that often, but when it does it’s huge. We’re talking about the factory authorized Polaris snowmobile clearance event at DuPont Power Tools in Quincy. Owner Duffy DuPont says the pricing is great with huge rebates and incredibly low 36-month financing.
