LOCKSMITH GETS KEY TO LARGER LOCATION

Anchor Lock and Key and Cousins and Co. have moved to a larger location in the old Carpetland building at 1240 Chetco Ave., Brookings.

Both shops were located next door to Lees Dragon Gate restaurant on Cottage Street. There they had lots of storage space, but little display space, said Steve Gumm, owner of Anchor Lock and Key.

Display space isnt as necessary for a lock shop, but for Cousins and Co., which sells sheet music, musical instruments and supplies, it can be helpful. The music store is operated by Steves wife, Kim.

At the new location, Gumm said they have increased the display space, especially for the music store. The new location also gives the lock shop more room to work.

Gumm said that 85 percent of lock work is dealing with small parts.

Keeping up with new lock technology is crucial to the business. Gumm said he learns about the new locks, especially on cars.

Its not like in the old days where a person could unlock the car with a Slim Jim, Gumm said. Because of the damage that could be caused using such a tool, he carries 50 unlocking tools for different makes of cars.

He also services auto ignitions on foreign and domestic makes, and he provides service for household locks.

Anchor Lock and Key offers AAA service, which has been offered by the shop for the past eight years, Gumm said.

He is available to help people 24 hours a day by calling (541) 469-6891. With the expanded shop, he has added a new employee to provide for improved service, he said.

I want to set a new precedence in Curry County by providing service in the service industry, Gumm said.

In addition to locks, vacuum cleaner repair, parts and accessories, Gumm said.

The expanded music store stocks more than 40 guitars, instrument supplies and music books, Gumm said.

Cousins and Co. carries Hohner guitars, Tacoma electric guitars, keyboards and drums.

Some instrument repairs are done, but most are sent away for service, Gumm said.

The phone number for Cousins and Co. is 469-6316.

The shops are open expanded hours from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Saturday hours remain 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

  • Asian stocks mixed as Mideast worries linger, oil eases
    Spreadbetters expected Britain's FTSE (.FTSE), Germany's DAX (.GDAXI) and France's CAC (.FCHI) to tip toe higher while the markets awaited fresh cues from the Middle East. Crude oil prices were lower due to the dollar's bounce and as investors reassessed the potential impact of the escalating conflict in Yemen, where Saudi Arabia and allies carried out air strikes on Iranian-backed Houthi rebels on Thursday. Excluding the effect of last year's sales tax increase, data released on Friday showed Japan's core consumer price index was flat in February compared with a year ago. U.S. crude (CLc1) was down 2.1 percent at $50.33 a barrel after jumping 4.5 percent overnight because of the military action in Yemen.
  • Oil prices fall more than $1 as supply threat eases
    Oil prices fell more than $1 on Friday, after sharp gains in the prior session, as worries of a disruption to supplies due to Saudi Arabia-led air strikes in Yemen eased. Goldman Sachs said the strikes in Yemen would have little effect on oil supplies as the country was only a small crude exporter and tankers could avoid passing its waters to reach their ports of destination. Oil jumped around 5 percent on Thursday, the biggest daily gain in a month, as air strikes in Yemen by Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab allies sparked fears that escalation of the Middle East battle could disrupt world crude supplies. The Saudi-led coalition launched more air strikes on Friday against targets in the Houthi-controled Yemeni capital of Sanaa including close to the presidential compound.
  • Senate passes Republican budget with deep safety net cuts
    The Senate passed a Republican-authored budget plan early on Friday that seeks $5.1 trillion in domestic spending cuts over 10 years while boosting military funding. The 52-46 vote on the non-binding budget resolution put Congress on a path to complete its first full budget in six years. It came at the end of a marathon 18-hour session that saw approval of dozens of amendments ranging from Iran sanctions to carbon emissions and immigration policies. Two Republican senators who are running or considering running for president, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, voted against their party's budget plan, which is similar to one passed by House Republicans on Wednesday.
