Pearson's Music

Curtis Pearson served proudly during World War II and, upon returning to the United States, was told of a sales job at the Poole Music Company. After several successful years and getting the bug to sell, Curtis formed the first of seven music stores in North Carolina called Pearson's Music. The store became the top-grossing Wurlitzer dealer in the area and was able to build up the band and orchestra department thanks to Curtis’ determination to provide full service to the schools he visited. His store was also very strong in the church organ business and piano sales.
