FRAME ART SUPPLY STORE EXPANDS TO BROOKINGS

By Marjorie Woodfin

Pilot staff writer

Dennis and Suzie Wright, with help from other family members, opened Wright's Custom Framing this month, at 509 Chetco Ave.

The Brookings store might be considered an expansion of the family frame shop in Crescent City, originally the Ben Franklin store when Dennis Wright's parents Jim and Lillian Wright took it over in 1980.

Dennis, who worked for a trucking company, and Suzie, who was a bus driver, moved from Sacramento to join his parents in the Crescent City store in 1992 and began their on-the-job training.

"We started getting into it and we liked it," he said. "The Lord gave us most of the gifting. We trust in Him." About the new store, Dennis said, "If He wants it to go, it'll go. If not, that's okay. We're Christians first."

Over the years, they have learned how best to serve artists and art lovers, many of their customers traveling from the Brookings area.

"I always wanted to branch out," Dennis said. "We have enjoyed coming to the art walks and we considered coming here several years ago, but it just didn't seem like the right time."

When the opportunity to move into the shop next door to the Curry Coastal Pilot became available, it seemed to the Wrights to be the right time to open the new store to make shopping for framing and art supplies more convenient for Brookings customers.

The Wrights, including Dennis Wright's parents, grown children, Travis and Keiara, and sister and brother-in-law, Scott and Terri LaFollette, are all involved in the new shop as well as the store in Crescent City. However, Suzie said she expects to be the one tending the Brookings store most often.

The merchandise in both shops includes more than custom frames, with an extensive selection of ready-made frames and a wide array of art supplies.

Wright's Custom Framing is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.

  • 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.
