The origin of Piano Liquidators was based on our company's primary focus as the national "liquidator" for several major piano manufacturers.
Our inventory consisted of pianos that the manufacturer had supplied for movie and television props, convention demo models, factory
cosmetic blems and, sometimes, a piano that had been used by someone famous in concert.
Unfortunately, over the last ten years, the availability of these instruments became more and more slim and finally to the point that you could
not maintain a business model based on that lessening availability.
Fortunately however, based on the turnaround of the market that now primarily seeks high-quality used instruments, combined with our ability
to locate great pianos at great prices, no sales tax in Oregon, incredibly low shipping rates nationally, and our decision to move away from a
high overhead downtown location, our image and business model now more closely fits that of a gallery vis-a-vis a "liquidator."
Our name change will be fully effective once the new telephone directory is published in early 2015.
Over the last 31 years, there have been two other name changes to this business. Founded in 1983, the business originally operated under
the name Keyboard Associates. After about five years, as the business offerings expanded to include guitars, amps, PA, lighting and
recording gear, the name changed to Musician's Depot (with Musician's Depot, Inc. also becoming our corporate name). While also
operating a store under the Musician's Depot name, we expanded into a new market area opening an additional two locations under the
name of Piano Liquidators. When Musician's Depot relocated, downsized and returned to a keyboard only business model, the new
location also became the third Piano Liquidators. Note, however, that the management and ownership of the company has remained in the
hands of the original founder, Don Thumel, through all the changes.
