Quincy Business Association
Quincy is our Business
The Quincy Business Association was created to encourage unity among Quincy's businesses.
We strive to promote professional networking and the general welfare of the community businesses, it is with this objective in mind that we provide activities to benefit the entire community.
- Civic, social, commercial and economic welfare.
- Providing a forum for the exchange of ideas relative to business policies.
- Develop integrity and support commonwealth loyalty.
- Lend guidance in all aspects of good customer relationships.
- To serve as a vehicle for collective promotional events that will benefit Quincy business, it being understood that the efforts and funds of the association will be directed toward these mutual goals.
Working in conjunction with Quincy Valley Chamber of Commerce. Merchants gather on a regular basis to deliberate solutions to promote, enhance and sustain the Quincy businesses. Working together to achieve an urban revitalization, supporting each other as we pursue prosperity.
We invite downtown business neighbors to participate collectively to achieve unity and improve our community. Encourage investing locally while inviting visitors to participate in resident events.
Our Spring event is 'Daffy Days' which is an idea brought back from Quincy's past. To encourage stores to promote their businesses and customer appreciation with the color yellow and daffodils being the common thread throughout town.
Several businesses host Spring open houses or have sideway sales to promote the event.
We have introduced a new event to our community called 'Market Day' which is held on the last Saturday in July from 9am to 3pm on Central Avenue. To promote shopping locally and create a fun event for visitors. Existing store-front businesses are encouraged to have sidewalk sales and other displays in front of their stores. Along with spots that can be rented on the streets and sidewalks that are open to local vendors and fundraising groups to sell their crafts, produce, antiques and flea market items. This event was a welcomed success; we look forward to the return vendors and to more participation this July. This year we are also working to add an evening event to showcase our local wineries.
The QBA established a new tradition to celebrate fall, accompanying the cornstalks the group collects and attaches to the downtown lamp poles. We invite the community to participate in creating 'scarecrows' to show a depiction of their business, occupation, favorite person, character, sport, ect.
One of the events we also enjoy putting together is a Country Christmas, which is hosted at Rotary Park on the first Monday of the holiday season following Thanksgiving. The Boy Scout Troops decorate the downtown streets with white lights purchased by the Quincy Business Association. On the night of the celebration our town lights the community Christmas tree along with caroling and a blessing. Santa rides into town on a shiny fire engine and the children are invited to meet Santa and Mrs. Clause with their wish list and receive candy canes graciously provided by the Quincy Valley Lions Club.
