Business Scene for the week of 3/14/18

Massage studio in Quincy
Annie Holt has opened Work of Heart Massage at 315 Main St. in Quincy (her studio is inside the chiropractic offices of Dr. Martin Sanford). Annie is a licensed massage therapist and has practiced in both the Bay Area and in Hawaii. She attended the Aloha Institute of Massage and Healing where she learned lomilomi; the ancient Hawaiian style of massage that she says is similar to a Swedish full body massage tailored to a client’s pressure preference. Since she was a child, Annie has been coming to this area staying at a cabin near the Camp Layman Resort, which, coincidentally, is owned and operated by her uncle and aunt, Dan and Shelly McDonald.

Quincy Thrift & Co. is celebrating its 16th anniversary in a big, big way thanks to owners Traci Turner, Brad Turner and Dave Sims. On Saturday, March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day, no less) from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. they are serving burgers, drinks and live entertainment featuring the Michael Barclay Blues Band at their Main Street store that is across the street from the courthouse. It’s their festive way of thanking you for 16 great years so be sure to stop by, have a bite and a pop and enjoy!


As usual, one of the first seasonal restaurants to reopen for the upcoming season is the Graeagle Restaurant, which reopened last Saturday, March 10. This marks the 62nd year for this prominent and popular downtown eatery and the 18th year for owner/operators Candi Ward and Ed Ward. They are open daily, serving breakfast and lunch 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.



Mike and Lisa Kelly shared with us that after seven terrific years and after meeting lots and lots of wonderful people they decided it was time to make that difficult decision to sell their landmark dinner house, Moon’s the restaurant somewhere in Quincy. However, the hardworking couple added that when it sells they plan to start a new venture in Quincy, a town they absolutely love and want to see continue to prosper. Lisa and Mike want their patrons to know that until they find “the right buyer(s)” they will continue to provide the best food, service and dining experience that has been the restaurant’s brand for several decades. If, by chance, you want to know about this business opportunity I would suggest you give them a call at the restaurant.
