Sommers Piano Service was started in 1958 by Robert E. Sommers (Bob Sr.) in Victoria and moved to Parksville in 1963. Robert A. Sommers (Bob Jr.) learned the trade from his father and now owns and operates the business.
In 1979 Sommers Piano and Organ Sales was founded by Bob Jr. In time the business expanded and grew to three retail outlets that provided sales, tuning, restoration, refinishing and rebuilding of all types of pianos. Piano and voice lessons, music and educational books were available at all three locations. This was an extremely busy time for all those involved including Bob Jr's son, Grant, who joined the family business in 1988.
In 1992 Bob Jr. was returning from a funeral in Castlegar. During the long drive home he had time to reflect on life. The RV had not been used in two years, there were times when he hadnít been home for weeks, he had taken no fishing trips in a long time. . . you get the picture.
Deciding to return to a simpler life, Bob relocated home to Qualicum Beach and now has just the Piano Warehouse in Errington as a sales, service and storage location.
