Meet Tom Hood & Tina Sott
In a retail niche that is notoriously short-lived for some owners, Tom Hood and Tina Scott are proud to have been in business for a record 19 years in the community. For the longevity of Logan Lake Video and Books, Tom and Tina credit their faithful customers, almost all of whom are repeat visitors and strong supporters.
Most days Tom commutes and works at our sister store, Merritt Movie Experts, leaving Tina to run the Logan Lake store. This is why they go out of our way to make sure the staff love movies, so they can help you. "We don’t watch every movie in the store but can tell you something about most of them. "
One of the things they like best about living and owning a business in Logan Lake is the fact that the residents are decent, hard-working and honest people. Tom recounts a story that illustrates this beautifully. One year he decided to leave a volleyball in the park for others to use. By the time fall rolled around the ball was still there. In fact, he repeated this for three years and never had a ball “disappear” (though two got worn out, he points out). “I still have a ball at the store if anyone wants to borrow it!” he adds with a grin.
When Tom and Tina aren’t busy working they like to get out and enjoy the abundance that the Logan Lake nature has to offer. Tom particularly enjoys canoeing, camping and driving around with the top down on his convertible. Tom and Tina give back to the community of Logan Lake by supporting initiatives and groups like the Highland Valley Archers, the Highland Valley Outdoors Association, Logan Lake Search and Rescue and Warm-a-Bellies.
