Business Scene for the week of 3/17/2010


chiropractor adds greenville

            Dr. Bruce Walker has announced that in addition to seeing patients in his long-established Quincy practice, he is now taking his 27 years of experience to Indian Valley, seeing patients on Tuesdays at the Greenville Medical Clinic on Hot Springs Road. Call the clinic or his office in Quincy to make an appointment. 

two restaurants reopen

            Two restaurants in Graeagle have reopened for the upcoming season. Graeagle Restaurant is serving breakfast and lunch daily and will start serving dinners a bit later in the spring season. Grizzly Grill and Mountain Cuisine in Blairsden have both reopened. We understand some remodeling has taken place at both establishments and each features a new menu.


you just get good vibrations

            Becky Weatherson and Sharon Geney were at a gift show in San Francisco recently buying yet more merchandise for their unique Chester store, Good Vibrations. Inside the historical Stover Building, you will now find a new assortment of functional recycled art glassware and “gifts of inspiration” added to already diverse inventory of “organic and earth-friendly products for conscious living.” The store carries art, home décor, jewelry, books, CDs and homeopathy products as well. Increase your awareness: Paula Swauger now offers Intuitive Readings.


rain-x wash treatment added

            Among the many improvements and changes made to the Touchless car-washing system at Fuel Star 76 in Quincy recently is the addition of the Rain-X application to one of the four washing options. Manager Debbie Lewis explained it as an amazing product that is a non-reflective invisible application greatly improving weather-driving visibility on glass by repelling water. By the by, chilidogs have been added to the food court’s extensive menu.


buy four, get fifth lunch free

            After a delightful lunch the other day at Quincy’s Café Le Coc, those at our table were each given of us a business card with signature on the back. Owner and Chef Patrick explained that after each visit diners will get another signature —collect four and the next lunch is on them!


noting the anniversaries…

            Linda Rutherford CDA,RDA is pleased to celebrate her third year working at the dental offices of Dr.Greg Sawyer in East Quincy. Linda has been a practicing dental assistant for 36 years and a registered dental assistant for 34 of those years. When she isn’t in the office or attending continuing educational classes, Linda volunteers her time for the Healthy Smiles program applying fluoride varnish and giving oral hygiene instructions at the elementary schools.


            x Certified classical homeopath Rose Buzzetta is celebrating the first year in her new location at 372 Main St. in Quincy. To mark the occasion, for the balance of this month and through April she is offering discounts on homeopathy health consultations.


            x TheGiggling Crow marks its first year of business in Chester on Main Street. Joe, Carrie and Suzanne are thrilled to report that the first year for the men and women’s boutique was a huge success, so much so they doubled in size since opening.


            x It’s the sixth anniversary for Vicki Mason and her Main Street Chester business, Sonshine Flowers. Over the years they have added gifts, cards and bath and body baskets. Vicki and daughter Brooke were at the Greenleaf Wedding and Spring Show in Reno recently where nationally known J. Schwanke offered hands-on instruction on creating original bouquet designs.


children’s dance classes offered

            Children’s dance classes are being offered at Lake Almanor Fitness Center in Chester by Amanda Dominques, a graduate of Applegate Dance Company, Davis, CA. As a passionate and accomplished ballet dancer and choreographer, Amanda has taught with the City of Davis and routinely performed with a traveling dance company.  Amanda will initially be offering ballet and creative movement dance classes for kindergarten children after school.

passport photos in chester

            The Chester-Lake Almanor Chamber of Commerce has announced that passport photos are now available at the chamber office, thanks to a generous donation of equipment to do the passport photos from long time community business members, Peter and Rosie Schultz. Call (530) 258-2426 for an appointment.


everything is different now

            Ran across this interesting perspective posted on Jan. 7, 2009, at tompeters.com that is certainly well worth sharing:


             Don’t think of our current economic crisis as a recession. Instead, think of it as a recalibration.

            Everything is different now. The world I am working in today is different from any world I have ever done business in. The world has been reset.

            If you think of it as a recession, you may be temped to hunker down and wait for the economy to cycle back.

            If you think of it as a recalibration, you will be motivated to focus on what you have to do differently, since everything is different now.

            The way your business generates results is different now.

            Your customers think differently, too.

            Your customers care about different things, now.

            Your customers act differently, now.

            Your customers many actually be different people, now.

            Customers aren’t disposable anymore; more than ever, you have to create sustainable customer relationships.

            Everything is different now.
