Amy Weeks says she couldn’t be more excited about their recent acquisition — and for all the right reasons. They bought the longtime shuttered building that was formerly Stoney’s Country Burger on Main Street in Quincy. Amy says she will have double the showroom space in addition to a warehouse to store more of her expanding inventory. Extensive remodeling will begin once escrow closes (expected in the next week or two) and once the construction is completed (no firm date yet), the county’s largest mattress store will move in. Once completed, she is confident the community will be pleased with the building’s new appearance. “In August, we’ll be marking our second anniversary and I really appreciate the support we’ve received from this community. My father, Gary, and his 50 years in the wholesale mattress business has certainly contributed to our success and promise of selling top quality products at competitive prices,” Amy said. The larger showroom allows them to carry more mattresses, bedding, frames, toppers and headboards. The store will remain open for business in its present location on Lawrence Street next to the fire station.


Traci Turner, owner of Quincy Thrift, is closing her business at its current location on Main Street (across from the post office) on Wednesday, June 21, and will reopen it in its new location in downtown Quincy across from the courthouse June 27. Traci says there will be lots of merchandise left behind in the old location that she will be giving away there for free. Needless to say, Traci is excited to be moving back downtown into this prime location — historically known as the Ayoob’s building — with all the added space.
