Travelers Acceptance and Audio Video Unlimited introduce affordable Consumer Finance Program for Canadian Consumers

    VANCOUVER, Jan. 27 /CNW/ - Travelers Acceptance Corporation is pleased to
announce our expanded entry into the consumer lending space at a time when
more and more retailers are experiencing difficulty finding partners to
finance this ever-important sector of the Canadian economy.

Canada, we are growing and expanding. Our most recent partnership with Audio
Video Unlimited demonstrates our ongoing and long term commitment to the
Canadian Retail Industry," said Scott Weber, Director of Consumer Durables
    Audio Video Unlimited is the first major Canadian electronics retailer to
embrace the concept of augmenting their method of payment strategy with
affordable payment marketing and pricing that will complement its existing
private label credit card program. Jim Orr, President of Audio Video Unlimited
said, "We are very pleased to partner with Travelers for our consumer finance
needs. This program will give us the ability to structure finance solutions
that fit our client's requirements allowing them to leave with the products
they desire. We look forward to a long and beneficial relationship with
Travelers Acceptance."
