Biz News for Oct. 16, 2012
CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED DEALER
Wheels West in Susanville has recently been approved as a Quality Plus Certified pre-owned dealer. Owner Jason Rieger informs us they are the only certified pre-owned dealer in Lassen and Plumas counties.
“Basically what this means to the consumer is every vehicle 2002 and newer goes through a 150 point inspection, has a 3 month or 3,000 mile warranty, roadside assistance and much more,” Rieger says. "It's buying at the used vehicle price with the new vehicle confidence."
For more information, stop by the dealership on Main Street and talk with Doug McDonald, Jim Oschner or JR Lunsford.
INDOOR YARD SALE
Time to do some fall cleaning of the closets. The Lassen Senior Services Center is hosting an indoor yard sale Nov. 3. They will be renting out 10 foot by 10 foot spaces. What a great way to get a bunch of people together and have a yard sale. You can contact Penny Artz at the center for more information.
The Senior Services Center is also now an e-waste recycler for ink cartridges, MP3 players, cell phones, digital cameras and laptops. You can drop off any of these items at their Sunkist Drive location.
While you're there, be sure and check out the Christmas quilt they are selling tickets for. It was donated by Scrap-a-holics.
