A Local, Convenient Music Store for the Whole Family.
Founded inn 1998 by Michael Pekar since its original
guitar specialty shop on Portage Trail, the store now features a widened inventory to meet the needs
of family and community. Pekar's retail plan
supports American owned CD's and products
and supports locally owned companies and jobs.
The new location has expanded its products and
services by adding locally owned distributors,
a local teaching staff and local service technicians.
The owner, A.K.A. "Mighty Mike" is personally very
proud of the store's sponsored musicians which he
has personally equipped and promoted with their
music careers. Mike has been in the music business
41 years and credits the over 2500 people on the
store's mailing list for keeping the store going.
Thank you so much! Keep writing songs!

Review By Phil Keaggy:
I happened upon Pekar Music Co because after a walk on the trails, my wife, her sister and I decided to have a Stricklands ice cream (our favorite) and I noticed Pekar Music right next door.
I needed strings and Michael Pekar was very personal. We spoke for a number of minutes and got talking about guitars and basses. He showed me his special guitar collection and I also noticed his basses.
A burgandy Hofner bass caught my eye and after playing it, I bought it. I had recently given my Gibson G3 to my son who is the bassist in the rock band HCR. The bass arrived here at my home just in time for me to put the bass parts on 5 of my new songs for my new Christmas CD (Welcome Inn) which will be released in a couple of weeks.
Thanks Michael for the great and reliable service. All the best with the music school too!
