Business Scene for the week of 7/12/17


Five years ago Quincy native Johnny Mansell took the reins at Town and Country Properties in Quincy from longtime owners Denny and Faith Swanson. Johnny joined the company in 2006 as a real estate sales agent and earned his broker’s license in 2008. Johnny, who just completed a very successful year as the president of the Quincy Rotary Club, is also very involved in numerous community events and projects.

Chester Veterinary Clinic has been taking care of your pets for 22 years. In 2008 Dr. Roberta Wiederholt bought the clinic and has since remodeled the building adding two additional rooms, one for examinations and one for their laser treatments, a digital x-ray machine and an ultrasound machine and room to do in-house blood work.

It’s 18 years for Mike and Cathy Simmons’ Morning Star Log Furniture, located a few miles west of Chester near the junction of highways 89 and 36. In addition to an assortment of handcrafted furniture, their spacious showroom also includes an art and gift gallery.

Two years ago, Helen and Dave Reynolds opened the Eastside Public House. As we’ve said before in this space, it’s amazing how the hardworking couple have promoted events and fundraisers at their East Quincy pub. Hardly a week goes by without some added attraction — so, once again, good job you two!

The family owned and operated DeMartile Automotive in Quincy recently turned 17 years young. Tim and Marcy DeMartile, and Evans and Kathy DeMartile, and J.R. and Evans Jr. are well known for taking exceptional care of their customers’ automotive needs. When it comes to repairing autos, 4x4s and motor homes, their slogan: “We Do It All, We Do It Right” certainly has resonated with their customers.

Tom and Doria Hupp, owners of Almanor Flooring Inc., celebrated their milestone silver anniversary, yep 25 years, in business. The Chester store carries a large selection of carpets, vinyl, hardwood and laminates in stock along with hundreds of samples of all types of flooring that you can also choose from as well as Hunter Douglas window coverings.

Leslie and Jeff Greenwood opened Sierra Valley Barns on Highway 70 just east of Beckwourth 18 years ago. Some of the products they manufacture at their facility include horse barns, tack rooms and economical barn-style storage buildings in a variety of sizes, which you commonly see throughout Plumas, Lassen and Sierra counties and even in the greater Reno area.

The Giggling Crow on Main Street in Chester is marking its eighth anniversary. Suzanne Hernandez’ store offers a large selection of new and rediscovered upscale women’s clothing, designer jeans and new fashion accessories, including jewelry, hats, scarves and more. And now that they have moved next door to the Nest, co-owned by Suzanne, shoppers can enjoy two unique shopping experiences.


We reported here last week that the Plumas Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is celebrating their sixth anniversary. Well, that’s sorta true. They’ve actually been in Plumas County finding homes for cats for 18 years and they have been in their Highway 70 East Quincy “Cathouse” shelter and adoption center for six years. In their ongoing efforts to expand the scope of their rescue programs, the nonprofit offers spay and neuter discount certificates to local residents through a state assisted program.
