What readers know about Stacy’s Music shop is that it’s the best in town. What they might not know is that the shop has been around since 1945, when Carl “Stacy” Monk, the member of a dance orchestra band in the mid-1920s, discovered the area’s need for a prerecorded music source. Once he finished his work in the naval shipyards during World War II, he used his life savings to open the store. In second place, Heinz Musitronics has been offering sound solutions since 1975.
