AVU Coquitlam shut down their installation bay at the end of May of this year. They send all of their car audio business over to SoundsGood. We take good care of their customers in return for taking good care of their customers. It's a win-win situation for all.

No. Every store has that automomy. Thy only have one corporate store, Coquitlam. AVU Maple Ridge got out of car a couple of years ago. AVU Surrey does it...kind of.
I think that the biggest issue has been finding good installers. It's not like it used to be. Most of the talent from back in the 90's has moved on to bigger and better things.
