STORE HOURS DURING THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS
LAST DAY OPENED: DECEMBER 23, 2011
REOPENING ON: JANUARY 3, 2012
Can you believe that 2011 is almost over???
This has been an incredible year and we wanted to take a moment to thank the thousands of customers - both new and old - that have taken the time to visit our shop. It's customers like you that make running a shop like this so much fun. So again, thank you.
Over this past year we have had some great highlights, including our much debated 'Tape Shoot-out', our annual Vintage Audio & Record Swap Meet and of course the articles about our store written by Brent Butterworth on his visit in the summer. Also this year I had the chance to visit quite a number of other places both in Canada and in the US that deal with used and vintage audio and have to say that in my humble opinion, this type of gear is here to stay. The increased awareness with records, tapes and other recorded media in general has spanned across many age barriers, and it seems that the 'home theater' craze has ebbed to a minor footnote in the big box stores. Major manufacturers have realized that two channel audio is making a comeback, and even stores like Fred Meyers are back stocking records again!
Speaking of records, the boys over at Apollo Music have been a real pleasure to work with in keeping our record room stocked. Mike and Jamie work insane hours keeping their own store going but also take the time to insure our customers keep getting great records at great prices. Thanks guys!
With Christmas being the high point of this month, we at Innovative Audio wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a safe and joyful holiday season. We also wanted to let our customers know that we will be closed from December 23rd to January 3rd 2012. The reason is simple; we do not believe in wringing out every dollar to increase the bottom line to close out the year. In addition we do not believe in playing Christmas music one minute after midnight November 1st until the end of 2011 nor do we participate in flashy, 'holiday sales' to increase the commercialism of Christmas.
What we do believe in is this season is for family, friends and spending time with those you care about. Having the store closed during this time allows us that, and I am hoping that our customers understand.
From all of us at Innovative Audio we wish you the very best of the season, Happy Holidays and a very Merry Christmas!
