Cousins and Co. music store re-opens today

Cousins & Co. music store, which has been in business 14 years at various locations in the Brookings-Harbor area, has moved from Earl E. Books to a new location: 615 Chetco Ave.

A grand re-opening, featuring music and refreshments, is scheduled for noon through 6 p.m. today (Oct. 30).

“The new location will give us the opportunity to once again become a full service music store,” said owner Kim Banfield.

The store will offer new and used instruments, strings and supplies,  instruction books and sheet music, hand percussion and drum supplies, school band books and supplies, Banfield said.

“We have expert technicians close by to repair or restring guitars, violins, mandolins, and most other stringed instruments.  In the near future we will also offer band instrument repair,” she said.

Banfield is offering a 10 percent discount on purchases by students who show a Brookings-Harbor High School identification. Students who enroll in a lesson program being offered by the nonprofit Stagelights Musical Arts Community will also receive the discount, she said.

The store, formally known as Cousins and Co. Music and Antiques, will also feature a small gift shop area filled with collectible and gift items, incense, hand-made items, greeting cards and other specialty items. 

The store, open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, is located three doors south of the Redwood Theater.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
