Four months after the Dec. 15, 2013, fire that destroyed a half-block of downtown Quincy, the corner sits empty and will likely remain that way for a while.

Tommy and Carol Miles, who had been refurbishing the former Great Northern building (one of the two structures destroyed in the fire), hope to have building plans and permits completed within a month, but don’t anticipate construction beginning anytime soon.

How cool is Quincy, the town voted the coolest small town in the West? Ice cold. The England-based company Wall’s apparently thinks so, at least. The European ice cream company set a crew up in Quincy on April 11 to film a commercial to be aired online later this month.

The company coordinated with the San Francisco branch of DDB Worldwide Communications Group Inc., a global advertising firm. Some members of the firm saw Quincy on Yahoo late last year, voted as one of the coolest small towns in America, and thought it would be a great location to film.

“It’s such a cute, quaint, small town,” explained DDB’s Danielle Watchman on its choice of location. “We really liked the look of it. We thought it would be a nice fit for what we are going for.”
