NEWTON – Gord Sauck has some additional company at the Innovative Audio store he operates.
The shop, located in a corner of a business park on 78th Avenue, is home to shelves upon shelves of vintage and used audio gear – the kind loved and collected by true audiophiles, most of whom are of a certain vintage themselves.
Since July, Sauck and wife Susan have leased a corner of their 5,000-square-foot store to fellow North Delta resident Howard Tsumura, as space for the 4,000 used vinyl LPs in the bins at Howard’s Record Room.
Tsumura’s name may be familiar to sports fans who follow his coverage of high school and university teams in The Province newspaper.
The award-winning beat reporter was a longtime customer at Innovative Audio before he got into the business of selling records there, in his hours away from his work for the newspaper.
SINGLES TRAVEL CLUB COMES TO SURREY Travel agent Val Liddle has brought her Singles Travel Club concept to Surrey for dinner meetings, held on the third Monday of every month at the ABC restaurant at 19219 56th Ave.
The club is designed as a place for solo travellers to "meet new friends, enjoy the security of group travel and avoid the costly single supplement (fees)," said Liddle, a Burnaby-based agent whose website is at Singlestravelclub.ca.
She hosts club meetings at other locations in the Lower Mainland.
"The club organizes
short-and long-term trips geared toward those without a partner or a partner who is unable to travel," said Liddle, who says most of the club members are aged 55 to 75.
