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.
