Now in its 27th year, Steveston Villager Business Directory continues to serve the Steveston community. The Villager is a publication dedicated to the promotion of Steveston businesses. It is a welcome and valuable resource for all who use it. One of Richmonds many gems, Steveston has something to offer everyone. Visitors are often pleasantly surprised at the richness of offerings in this quaint seaside village. Both historic and picturesque, there are trails, dykes,

    natural parks and gardens, and a wide selection of amenities. One can stroll along the docks, purchase fresh seafood directly off the local fishermens boats, enjoy the areas fine cuisine, visit a museum, or shop the unique galleries and boutiques.

    This summer, the Steveston community will once again be celebrating its annual Steveston Salmon Festival. A well loved tradition since 1945, the Steveston Salmon Festival is a wonderful opportunity for the entire community to gather and celebrate Canadas birthday while at the same time, welcome visitors from other parts of Richmond, the Lower Mainland, and the world. Best wishes to all the contributors and users of the Spring 2013 issue of the Steveston Villager Business Directory.

    Frankie Neilson , Owner Of The Beatmerchant Record Store

    in Steveston

    Beatmerchant Record Store - the Best selection of Records, CDs & DVDsFrankie Neilson began his career as a young fresh-faced 17-year-old recording engineer at the Marquee Studios in London s Wardour Street which was situated behind the famous Marquee Club in Soho Londons red light district before joining Elton Johns record label DJM as Assistant A&R Manager for four years in 1974.DJM was owned and run by Beatles publisher Dick James who was also responsable for discovering Elton John and this was a great opportunity for Frankie to learn the music business from the ground up before moving to Polydor Records UK A&R Department in 1979 where he worked with such artists as Paul Weller, The Jam, Ian Dury, 60s legend Billy Fury and his favourite group the Comsat Angels in the 80s.I was so proud to work for Polydor Records as it was the label in the 60s who released albums by Jimi Hendrix, Cream and the Taste which I loved!Starting his own label Individual Records in the mid 80s Frankie released six 45 rpm records and two 12 records which have become collectable because nobody bought them!Next he jumped over the big pond to Toronto before locating and settling in Vancouver, in British Columbia.In 1999 Frankie started his own website and started selling music items through the website and on eBay where he has achieved over 750 customer recommendations, then in 2005 with the music industry in total decline he started his own record store, The Beatmerchant Specailty Record Store in Steveston Village, Richmond BC.Flying in the face of everything that has happened in the music business lately such as ipods, copying and downloads he has built a loyal and dedicated following of customers in the historic and beautiful shing village Steveston on the mighty Fraser River in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada.
