quincy paint store opens friday
Longtime Plumas County resident Jerry Newell is opening Quincy Paint Center this Friday, March 1. The store, located on Lawrence Street in the historic big red barn that still bears the name Quincy Lumber on the roof, features products from Kelly-Moore Paints — known for their quality, easy application and long-lasting durability. This is the third paint store he has opened in this region in as many years; he also owns and operates Chester Paint Center and Susanville Paint Center. Kelly-Moore locations are billed as “The Painter’s Paint Store.” See their ad in this week’s newspaper for the money-saving grand opening discounts offered at all three locations through March. Stop by the new Quincy store Friday and enjoy some refreshments.

Ghulam Fareed has replaced the televisions in every room at his two lodging properties — the Best Western Rose Quartz Inn in Chester and the Gold Pan Resort in Quincy — with high-definition flat-screen televisions. So if anyone is looking for a free television in good working order this Thursday through Saturday, Feb. 28, March 1 and 2, he has instructed his staff to give away the televisions that were replaced to anyone who asks on a first-come basis. Just stop by the front desk at either motel on one of those days and help yourself!
