Company NameHenderson Music
Carl Henderson opened his first piano store in Covington, KY in 1963, after nearly 20 years in the finance business. In the early days he struggled to increase his inventory but ensured that he always allowed a budget for advertising. Over the years his newspaper and TV ads have not only helped sell pianos but have made him a familiar face and name within his community. Carl also worked to create meaningful promotions such as their Midnight Madness Sale. Carl and his son have expanded the store to six locations in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana.
