Heritage Office Furnishings is celebrating two milestones — forty years in business and 30 years in business in Kelowna.
Operated by president Wayne Cooney, Heritage is located in a 6,000 sq.ft. warehouse and showroom at 100-395 Penno Rd., with a second location in Kamloops. Both stores feature a full range of office furniture and related services. The company selects manufacturers based on their ability to provide quality products backed with warranties they can rely on and is a Steelcase Premier Partner. Staying on top of the trends, Heritage knows the importance of acoustic design and also partner with 3form, a company that specializes in room acoustics and acoustic design. Roy Newington is the business operations manager.
Vinyl is definitely coming back into style. Along with that, it is important to keep your vinyl clean. Why clean a record? The typical analogue vinyl record has about half a mile of grooves; any dirt or debris picked up as your stylus makes its long journey through your record will have an impact on sound quality. Just like a dirty or bumpy road will wear your car tires quicker, dirty grooves will inevitably make life harder for your stylus. Mobile Vinyl, owned and operated by Daniel Janus, specializes in mobile ultrasonic vinyl record cleaning serving the valley. He will pick up your records and deliver them back cleaned, or he will come to your residence and clean them while you wait with his state-of-the-art Vinyl Cleaner Pro unit. Contact him at www.vinylclean.ca.
