New dental clinic to open

A new dental clinic will open on South Auburn Street in Grass Valley in January.

Bruce Ivy, owner of Bruce Ivy Construction, says he’s building a new office for Dr. Lindsey Robinson, a pediatric dentist at 453 S. Auburn St.

“We did the groundbreaking ceremony last week,” Ivy says. He expects to finish in November.

“It’s going to be a state of the art pediatric dental facility,” Robinson said. “We’ll be able to accommodate our special needs patients better.”

Books and stationery store relocates

“Words on Paper,” a store selling cards, books, stationery and journals, has moved from its old location on Argall Way to 143 Mill St. in Grass Valley.

The store reopened its doors at its new venue Wednesday, according to Julie Hiramatsu, owner of the store.

“I loved where I was, but it was kind of out of the way,” she says. “So we came here to be more accessible to the entire county.”
