Cousins and Co. music store re-opens today Print E-mail
October 30, 2010 05:00 am

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.

    U.S. job growth slowed a bit in July and the unemployment rate unexpectedly rose, pointing to slack in the labor market that could give the Federal Reserve room to keep interest rates low for a while. Nonfarm payrolls increased 209,000 last month after surging by 298,000 in June, the Labor Department said on Friday. Although job growth was below expectations, July marked the sixth straight month employment expanded by more than 200,000, a signal of strength last seen in 1997. The one tenth of a percentage point increase in the unemployment rate to 6.2 percent came as more people entered the labor market, an indication of confidence in job prospects.

    U.S. stocks ended lower for a second day and the S&P 500 posted its biggest weekly decline since 2012 on Friday as concerns over Argentina's default continued to dog sentiment. Data showing U.S. job growth slowed in July and the unemployment rate unexpectedly rose suggested the Federal Reserve has room to keep interest rates low for a while. The jobs growth, which came in below economists' forecasts, relieved some investors worried about how soon the Fed could bump up interest rates after data on Thursday showed U.S. labor costs recorded their biggest gain in more than 5-1/2 years in the second quarter. A U.S. judge on Friday criticized Argentina's decision to default and ordered negotiations between the country and holdout investors to continue.
