LV’s Vinyl Cafe – DBA Business Spotlight

Published

This week Downtown Red Deer’s ‘business spotlight’ shines on a small locally owned and operated business, LV’s Vinyl Cafe.

Located at 4928B 50 (Ross) Street, this place is a great business to stop into if you’re a fan of vinyl, food, drinks, live music, and a cozy atmosphere.  We had the chance to chat with Lisa Spencer-Cook, the owner of LV’s, and ask her a few questions about her business. Check out the interview below!

What is your business?

My business is LV’s Vinyl Café in Downtown Red Deer.

When did your business open?

My business opened in November of 2017.

What makes your business unique?

I sell new and used vinyl records and throw live and intimate house concerts and music gatherings. I also hold a space every Saturday for autistic teens and young adults to gather as there is not a lot of that going on in the City right now.

What are some products/services that you offer?

I offer live music, used vinyl for sale, a menu that includes food and alcohol.

   

Why did you choose Downtown Red Deer as the location for your business?

I have worked in the downtown for a while for other companies and the downtown is the heart of the city. The community here I suppose.

What do you think makes Downtown vibrant?

The fact that everything is locally owned and operated. The art and cultural activities that happen in this city happen downtown. People really care down here and it’s a neat community to be apart of.

I love Downtown Red Deer because… of the great community.

Be sure to stop by LV’s Vinyl Café and try a delicious panini and a coffee (or alcoholic beverage of choice) and check out their house concerts that feature local musicians. For updates on house concerts or anything LV’s check out their Facebook page!

Keep an eye out for the kids!

This message is for all teachers and all adults in Alberta.  This is an unprecedented time when children in our province are asked to stay home.  That means they won’t be “seeing” their support systems in their schools and their community.  Please pay attention when you do see the children you encounter.  Some may need help.  Please keep your eyes open for vulnerable youth.

Message from Minister of Education Adriana LaGrange and Minister of Children’s Services Rebecca Schulz

“We are humbly asking for your help as we look to continue to protect those that need our help the most”

Thank you Minister of Education Adriana LaGrange and Minister of Children’s Services Rebecca Schulz for articulating the importance of watching out for our little ones, our vulnerable ones, during this time of crisis.

It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a community to keep them safe.

If you suspect abuse or are in need of help, please reach out.

Crime Prevention for Your Home During the COVID-19 Crisis

Published

on

March 27, 2020

More and more of us are working from home and practicing social distancing during this COVID-19 crisis. This means there are more “eyes on the street” in our neighbourhoods to notice and report suspicious activity. However, this could create some new challenges, such as increased “back alley” and vehicle activity. Here are some tips from the Central Alberta Crime Prevention Centre, in partnership with the RCMP, to improve your security at home during this time:

  • Remove all valuables (including coins, empty bottles, medications, bags, sunglasses, etc.)  from your vehicles and lock your doors every night. If you are leaving a vehicle parked on the street or garage pad, be sure to remove your garage door opener.
  • Store empty bags of bottles in your garage or a locked storage unit. Leaving them in plain view in your backyard or  back alley just encourages thieves to come on to your private property, and return to check if you have put more bags out.

    Tire Lock

    Hitch Lock

  • If you are storing an RV in your back yard, remove propane bottles and batteries, and don’t leave any other valuables in it, even “just overnight” because you are leaving in the morning.
  • If you are storing a trailer in your back yard, consider a lock hitch or tire lock.
  • Cut down bushes to 2′ or less, and trim tree canopies up to 6′ to increase sightlines into and from your property. Trim bushes away from doors and windows to remove hiding places for people who shouldn’t be there.
  • If leaving sliding doors or windows open for fresh air, leave them open them 6″ or less, and consider using inexpensive dowels inside the frame to ensure the window/door cannot be pushed open further from the outside.
  • Consider installing motion detector lights that you, or your neighbours, can see to alert you to suspicious activities.
  • If you are in your back yard, do NOT leave your overhead garage door open or your garage man door unlocked.
  • Implement the RCMP’s #9PMRoutine every night to reduce those “the one time I forgot” times and ensure your home is secured for the night.
  • If you own a business and it is currently closed, you may wish to check out our other article, “Crime Prevention for Your Business During the COVID-19 Crisis“.

Please continue to REPORT all suspicious activity to the RCMP non-emergency line at 403-343-5575. Should you want further information, please visit our website, call us at 403-986-9904, or email us at info@cacpc.ca.
