las vegas buying spree
While attending the World Market Show in Las Vegas, Norm and Jeanne Brovelli, owners of La Casa Bella Fine Furnishings, tell us they bought lots of new merchandise for their uniquely trendy furniture and home decorating store in Quincy. Look for these new items — lamps, vases, wall decor, decorative baskets and other home furnishing accessories — to be arriving soon. Jeanne said she is really excited to add the quality line of Momeni Persian carpets to her store, which can inspire ideas for making your home come alive with true timeless beauty. La Casa Bella is on Main Street across from the post office complex.
new manager at Sierra Super stop
Sierra Energy has hired Kurt Grammer as the new manager of the Sierra Super Stop (formerly Dollard’s) in Portola. Many knowKurt from the Pizza Factory in Portola, which he owns with his brother Kent. We should also note that Lance Benbow was hired a few monthsago as the assistant manager of the gas station and very well-stocked food and mini mart on Sierra Avenue (Highway 70).
quincy bowling alley not closing
It appears we have some people who didn’t read last week’s front page story about Dollar General carefully enough. The company is opening two stores here — one in Chester and one in Quincy — but the owners of La Sierra Lanes in Quincy, Jeannie and Richard Dykes, have been getting calls asking if it’s true they were closing and when.
So, here it is again just as the story read:
The company that operates Dollar General Stores bought the building where Almanor Bowling Center is located and will open its Chester location there. That bowling alley will be closing.
The Quincy store will be located in what is now an empty building on the corner of Mill Creek Road and Highway 70 in East Quincy. It’s next to Sav-Mor Foods and was once home to American Valley Hardware.
Dick and Jeannie want us to assure you: La Sierra Lanes is not closing.

directors award for quality
The Best Western Rose Quartz Inn in Chester has received the Best Western Directors Award for outstanding quality standards. The award recognizes hotels scoring in the top 20 percent of the more than 2,100 North American properties in cleanliness and maintenance. The hotels’ scores must also meet Best Western’s high standards for design and high customer service to qualify for the distinction. “This award is an important symbol of success,” said owner Ghulam Fareed, who acquired the facility last September. “This award confirms our commitment to providing quality accommodations for our guests. Our entire staff has worked hard to achieve this level of excellence.” The hotel features 51 rooms, Wi-Fi, a seasonal spa, exercise equipment, a multi-purpose rec area and conference rooms. Ghulam also owns and operates the Gold Pan Resort and the Union 76 Food Mart and Fuel Star gas stations in Quincy.
