Stettler’s Pfeiffer House of Music to close doors by end of July this year

After five decades of successful operation, local music business to close doors.

One of Stettler’s mainstay, the Pfeiffer House of Music has been a part of the town’s landscape for decades, but after 50 years of some robust business, the only music store in Stettler is slated to close doors by end of July.

What started as a family business by Scott Pfeiffer’s parents, Evelyn and Ken Pfeiffer, is in its 50th year of operation.

“We’re closing mainly due to changing economic conditions, and after much soul searching, I have decided the time has come to close the family business, Pfeiffer House of Music,” Scott Pfeiffer said. “I believe that this is the best decision right now for me and my family, and we will be holding a gigantic close out sale on all inventory items and fixtures.”

According to Pfeiffer, they have had many years of successful operation.

“The journey has been great,” Pfeiffer reminisced. “Stettler and area residents have been very good to our family and Stettler and area has been a great place to do business. We have many good memories of our many wonderful customers, many who have become great friends.”

The original store operated out of 5021-50th St. as the “House of Music.”

Later, they had two stores, one at the above-mentioned location and another at 5017-50th St., originally Armstrong’s Appliances.

In 1981, the Pfeiffers moved out of the original location and expanded from two buildings into one building.

“All family members have worked in the business in years past, and I took over the business full time after college in 1981 and bought the business in 1986, working with my father over the next five years, before he retired,” Pfeiffer said. “Our other employee, Roland, has been with the store since this time as our longest-serving employee from 1981 to this day, so 36 years of dedicated service.”

According to Pfeiffer, they have had many wonderful staff over all of these years who have contributed in positive ways to the business and the community in which they operated.

“Sherry and I want to thank all of our customers, Stettler businesses and the community, and the quality staff members that we have worked with from the past and present,” Pfeiffer said. “We will take special orders on products up until June 30, on an agreed-upon price with a deposit, and will fulfill these orders for our customers.”

The Pfeiffer House of Music is open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. from Monday to Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, with a liquidation sale on at the moment.
