Business Beat: The Brick offers warranty service for Sears customers

What do furniture, food and the Bulldogs have in common? Jowsey’s!

Jowsey’s Furniture is once again offering free delivery with the donation of a non-perishable food item.

Bulldogs’ new business manager Tali Campell liked the idea so much he threw in two tickets to the Dec. 3 game for anyone who donates at Jowsey’s. To top it off, Jowsey’s will have their truck at that game and the goal is to have fans fill it up with food donations. www.jowseys.ca

Santa is visiting Bosley’s Nov. 18 and Dec. 9 for the best holiday photo op. Bring in your pet from noon to 4 p.m. for a professional portrait of your pet. Just $5 and proceeds benefit the Qualicum Cat Rescue (Nov. 18) and Lions Foundation of Canada Guide Dogs (Dec. 9). Photos are courtesy of Rina’s Photography. Find Bosleys on Facebook at PortAlberniBosleys.

Do you have appliances that were purchased at Sears? Well, good news. The Brick has stepped up with a warranty service offer for Sears customers. The Brick, with its relationship with all major appliance suppliers, is ready to provide repair services to Sears customers who may be left stranded without repair service options.

To help offset the costs for servicing an appliance, The Brick is offering to Sears extended warranty holders a $100 gift card that can be used toward future purchases at The Brick. For Sears customers still covered within the one-year manufacturing warranty, The Brick is offering expedited servicing for most major brands at no cost to the consumer. www.brick.com

Sarah LaRose is the first female technician to apprentice at Harbourview Collision. Denis Levasseur at Harbourview was really impressed with LaRose’s attitude and experience.

“She took a year of pre-mechanical at NIC and they said they gave Sarah a high recommendation.”

LaRose was born and raised in Port Alberni.

“In high school I did a little bit of mechanics. I’ve always loved cars and have watched my dad do his own mechanics. For the past two years I have worked locally as a lube technician and now look forward to working in the auto body industry.” www.harbourviewcollision.com
