Business Scene for the week of 2/20/2015

What business was at our location prior to us moving in? What was our name before we became Quincy Hot Spot? What brand of jar candles do we carry? Those are the first three trivia questions asked in Quincy Hot Spot’s new easy-to-enter-and-win trivia contest. Don and Dee Dee Driscoll now include a trivia question in their store’s biweekly ads found inside this newspaper. If you know the answer and bring it by the store you stand a chance to win a $10 gift certificate. Contest or not, you should make a point of stopping by to check it out because there are lots of reasons why it is called Quincy’s Hot Spot! If you are looking for furniture, wood stoves, barbecues, barbecue sauces and rubs, housewares, gift items and the like we doubt that you will find a better selection, better quality or better price anywhere else. The store is on Highway 70 in East Quincy between the One Stop and Polka Dot.

The Quincy Crazy Quilters is celebrating its 15th anniversary this month. Members meet on the third Thursday each month at 6 p.m. at the Plumas Bank administrative building (behind Safeway). The group — and there are 25 members now — makes “cuddle quilts” that are donated to charities, foster children and hospice. They also provide the California Highway Patrol and sheriff’s department with quilts to carry in their vehicles to use as necessary. By the way, quilts are on display at the Quincy library.
