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.

  • Asian stocks slip, euro hits one-year low on ECB uncertainty
    MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan lost 0.4 percent after managing to carve out gains on the previous day. Tokyo's Nikkei (.N225) bucked the trend and rose 1.2 percent, with a planned cabinet reshuffle by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe helping fuel reform hopes. In currencies, the dollar, boosted by the flagging euro and gains in Tokyo shares that dented the appeal of the safe-haven yen, rose to a seven-month high of 104.76 yen (JPY=). The market is also keeping an eye on the rise in equities," said Shinichiro Kadota, chief Japan FX strategist at Barclays Bank in Tokyo.
  • China anti-trust probes not protectionist, regulator says
    China's latest antitrust probes, which have hit firms such as Microsoft (MSFT.O) and Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE), are not protectionist tools that favor domestic firms, an official of the country's price regulator told the official China Daily. In an interview, Xu Kunlin, director general of price supervision and the anti-monopoly bureau at the National Development Reform Commission, reiterated that the agency was giving equal treatment to local and foreign companies. The probes, which have scrutinized at least 30 foreign firms so far as China seeks to enforce a 2008 anti-monopoly law, have worried U.S. "Such accusations are groundless and baseless," the China Daily quoted Xu as saying.
  • China won't force foreign auto parts makers to form local JVs: EU trade body
    The European trade body in China said Beijing is not planning to force foreign auto parts suppliers operating in the country to form local joint ventures, dismissing a report last week that had stirred concern among European firms. Germany's Stuttgarter Zeitung newspaper reported that China had urged three German car parts suppliers to form partnerships with local rivals, citing the head of German parts supplier ElringKlinger AG (ZILGn.DE). "The European Chamber is confident that these rumors are unfounded and that the Chinese government has no intention to require the formation of joint ventures in the sector," the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China said in a statement on its website dated Aug. 29. The European Chamber said the JV rumors could be the result of a misunderstanding stemming from existing restrictions dating from 2011 for suppliers in the e-vehicle segment.
