Nick-N-Willy’s name change

Nick-N-Willy’s Pizza, 3196 Willow Creek Road, in Prescott has changed its name to Granite Mountain Pizza Company.

A crew member at the restaurant said the name change was for rebranding purposes.

“We just wanted to break away the franchise,” the crewmember said.

Very little has changed about the restaurant, otherwise. Nearly all of the menu items and prices have remained the same.

Busy Bee Cleaning closed

Fighting recurring health and family problems, Victoria Johnson of Busy Bee Cleaning made the difficult decision to close the doors at the end of last year.

Johnson and her husband, David, will remain in the area they love, but find they must both retire in order to recuperate, rehabilitate and regroup, she said.
