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.

  • Warren Buffett says Berkshire has 'right person' as heir
    Warren Buffett told investors on Saturday that Berkshire Hathaway Inc (BRKa.N) had found his successor, giving more details than ever about the heir to the company he has run for 50 years. "Both the board and I believe we now have the right person to succeed me as CEO – a successor ready to assume the job the day after I die or step down," the billionaire, 84, said in his annual letter to Berkshire shareholders. "In certain important respects, this person will do a better job than I am doing," Buffett added, as Berkshire Hathaway reported a 17 percent drop in fourth-quarter net income, coupled with an improvement in its operating results. In previous annual letters, Buffett has said that Berkshire's board had been fully aware of his chosen successor but he kept his options open for other possible candidates.
  • Herbalife cuts pay of CEO Johnson 36 percent after missed targets
    Herbalife Ltd (HLF.N) cut the pay of Chief Executive Michael Johnson 36 percent for 2014 after the nutrition and weight loss company failed to meet performance goals set for him and other top executives, according to a securities filing on Friday. Herbalife said Johnson, who is also chairman, received total compensation of $6.73 million last year, down from $10.5 million in 2013, mainly because he did not receive the incentive plan compensation of $3.7 million he got the prior year. Herbalife has been closely watched since activist investor William Ackman accused the company of running a pyramid scheme in 2012, while rival investor Carl Icahn became the company's biggest owner in 2013. Herbalife, being investigated by state and federal regulators, has denied Ackman's charges.
  • Buffett says 'sprawl' is good, but may not be good enough
    Warren Buffett wants to buy more businesses to add to Berkshire Hathaway Inc's "sprawl," but cautioned it may not keep the company he has run for 50 years from evolving into something rarely used to describe it up until now: average. In his annual letter to shareholders, Buffett on Saturday said Berkshire's huge balance sheet gives him the power to funnel capital to some of the more than 80 operating units that deserve it, while its decentralized structure makes it the "home of choice" for many businesses looking to sell. "Berkshire is now a sprawling conglomerate, constantly trying to sprawl further," Buffett wrote. Berkshire's book value per share, Buffett's favored growth measure, has after taxes risen less than the Standard & Poor's 500 index including dividends, pre-tax, in five of the last six calendar years, after dwarfing the index in the prior 44 years.
