As it is February, often one of the first things that many think of is Valentine’s Day.  A day that is seen by numerous people as a means by which to show love and affection for those significant others in our respective lives but there would also remain room to be said that, in all honesty, that kind of sentiment can and should be expressed 365 days a year, as every day should count and be special.  For the sake of this particular holiday, some of the things that come into mind are the following; wine, chocolate, food and pretty flowers, specifically roses.  In terms of taking special recognition of some of our local area proprietors that engage in the business of selling these types of products and/or services, here are some of the following:

For flowers, you truly cannot do better than Oroville Flower.  A special Oroville tradition that is owned by the very talented Jack and Julie Jackson and is a clear example of a business that is owned by good and honest people that, on a daily basis, seek to engage in the art of creating lasting impressions and memories for those that are fortunate enough to receive one of their lovely creations.  Located at 2322 Lincoln Street, across from the Oroville Library, Oroville Flower Shop is a great place to find that special gift for someone.  Make sure to stop on in and you are sure to find the gift that you are looking for.

Next item on the agenda is to consider something to wet the pallet, or in this case, wine.  Oroville and the surrounding areas in Butte County are fortunate to have a wealth of wineries and vineyards that are truly special places to visit and sample the various offerings of the respective proprietors.  Wineries such as Long Creek, Purple Line, Quilici & Vineyards like Grey Fox and LaRocca, to name a few, there a bounty of options available in this case, so when your seeking to make plans for the weekend, or for Valentines, head to the web and check out these and the other options that are available.

Now to the heart of the issue, this brings us to the food.  There is a bountiful set of options in this case.  Whether it’s Tong Fong Low or Miner’s Alley in the heart of Downtown Oroville, the brand new restaurant near Rite Aid called The Patio, The Broken Plate off of Feather River Blvd, or others, food options abound throughout our lovely town and will satisfy any appetite, regardless of what you may be looking for.  As for chocolate, this can be found anywhere from Walmart to Raleys, so don’t forget a nice box of chocolates to go along with your Valentine’s Day plans, or a card for that matter either.  Those are always appreciated too.

In recognition of these and the other fine establishments that seek to call our community home, The Digger Shopper & News would like to take this time to thank you for the dedication to quality that many of you seek to provide on a daily basis.  Many of you have been loyal to us over the years, either through advertising and/or readership, so from all of us, thank you.  All in all, our community is blessed with many great businesses to choose from, regardless of the holiday and/or occasion and they should be appreciated.
