A FAMILY TRADITION FOR 34 YEARS

Ed Cammack marks his 20th anniversary as owner of Plumas Motor Supply in Quincy. He purchased the auto parts store from his parents, Bill and Beth, who originally bought the business in 1986. Ed has finished remodeling the parts storage section of the store adding some $80,000 in inventory. He said this was necessary to keep up with ever-changing requirements for new vehicles while balancing the need to supply older models as well. The store is an independently owned member of the Carquest Auto Parts stores, the largest aftermarket parts provider in North America.

THE FINISHING TOUCHES

The hard-working Plumas District Hospital Volunteers who run the Bargain Boutique Fine Thrift and Gifts in downtown Quincy are at it again! Since the new paint job in the store has made things cleaner and brighter, the volunteers have decided to put in new flooring and carpeting so the store will be closed Tuesday, Feb. 25, to get everything back in its place.
