OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW: FAIR CREATING NEW BUSINESS AT CHETCO LOCATION

By Ellen Babin

Pilot staff writer

A transition is taking place at 513 Chetco Ave. in Brookings.

Judy's Resale, a popular clothing store located at that address, is closing it's doors to re-open as Angel's Nest.

Nancy Fair, proprietor of Judy's Resale, is behind the change,which will be complete sometime in February.

The owner of Judy's Resale for four years, Fair decided earlier in the year to close the store for a variety of reasons. She cited a "gradual drop-off" in customers as one reason for the change.

"If I knew that there would be a payoff in summer, I would have considered staying open as Judy's Resale," Fair explained, "The tourists just didn't come last summer."

Changing the name of her store and diversifying what she sells is her plan to stay in business.

Angel's Nest will be full of "fun things," according to Fair, including home decor, furniture, pictures, clothing and jewelry.

The items will be a mix of new and gently used. "There will be no junk." Fair explained. A portion of the store's profits will go Haven of Hope women's shelter in Brookings.

Fair said she enjoyed and appreciated her many customers and looks forward to visiting with them again soon.

She said the store will be "closed down a couple of weeks" and then will reopen under its new name sometime in February.

  • 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.
