indian valley open houses
“A Christmas Tradition” features several Greenville and Crescent Mills businesses holding holiday open houses to kick off the season Nov. 2, 3 and 4. Participating businesses offering holiday cheer and special deals include Sterling Sage. I should add that owners Bink and Josh Huddleston met with owners of Mountain Fruit Company in Chico and brought back cases of fruit preserves just for this event. The others are Into the Woods, Evergreen Market, Sacred Space, Village Drug, Hunter Ace Hardware, Mohawk Trading Post, Donnell’s MusicLand and, of course, Crescent Country.
…and here’s where it began
For 27 years, shoppers have enjoyed the tradition of launching the holiday season by enjoying the annual Christmas at Crescent Country festivities. Barbara, Lisa and friends invite you to stop by the legendary Crescent Mills store and enjoy Barbara’s famous cookies and wassail Nov. 2 and 3, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Nov. 4, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
COMMEMORATing a milestone
A special Holiday Tasting celebration takes place Friday evening, Nov. 2, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Evergreen Market. There will be plenty of new product samples, yummy treats and ideas shared for the upcoming holidays. It was 35 years ago when Edgar and Carol Wilson and their daughter and her husband, Centella and Ken Tucker, moved to Indian Valley and opened Evergreen Market.
greenville business expands
Paul and Jayne Elliott have expanded their Greenville business, Into the Woods. The couple’s love of cabin decor, including antiques and collectibles, prompted them to move into the building next door to their present location at 116 Crescent St. — in the yellow Victorian house — so they could carry a larger inventory of quality used cabin furniture, primarily hickory from Old Hickory Furniture Co. and Flat Rock Furniture.
new hours for moon’s
Beginning Nov. 1, Moon’s Restaurant in Quincy will have new fall hours. Owner Lisa Kelly said they will be open Thursday – Monday at 4 p.m. with early bird specials and a happy hour Fridays, 4 – 6 p.m. She also wants to remind you to book your holiday parties and special events early. They have a conference room to facilitate meetings as well.

Sierra Energy and Allied Washoe Petroleum in Quincy have merged and now operate as Sierra Energy at its Crescent Street facility next to the Union 76 station. The Allied facility across the street will close; however, the card lock fuel pumps there will remain open. The consolidated business will be co-managed by Dave Frenzel and Joe Bridges.
propane companies merge as well
Coast Gas and Amerigas are merging and will be moving into the building on the corner of Mill Creek and Highway 70 in East Quincy. Manager Dave Shelton hopes that the crew will be moved into the building by the end of November once the renovation is complete. Until then, they will operate out of the Coast Gas building at 1690 E. Main.
