Mr. GOSAR. Mr. Speaker, today I congratulate Don and Lois Moore,
proprietors of the Quartzsite General Store. Mr. and Mrs. Moore opened
the Quartzsite General Store in Quartzsite, Arizona on December 12,
1972. This December 12 will mark the 41st anniversary of its opening.
The store's western-themed storefront has been a mainstay of
Quartzsite's Main Street for those 41 years, adding to the town's
character and economy. Known for its fresh meats and produce,
cleanliness, and great customer service, the General Store has
consistently contributed to the community of Quartzsite.
The store could not have been successful without Don's and Lois's hard work and dedication. Don retired from the store in 1999 and Lois retired from school teaching in 1995, but they both work at the store again today. Their determination to achieve their American dream is a shining example not only to their 6 children and 15 grandchildren, but to all current and future entrepreneurs. Small businesses like theirs are the backbone of our economy, and it is those businesses that will lead us out of our current economic problems.
Congratulations to the Quartzsite General Store and to its owners, Don and Lois, on 41 years of success. May they have continued success for many years to come.
