George’s Music

George Hines opened his first George's Music store in Spring City, Pa., on Aug. 17, 1977.

Since then, George's Music has grown into a large independent chain. In 1985, the company opened its second location in North Wales, Pa., followed in 1987 by its third store in Springfield (Delaware County). In 1989, George's opened its fourth location on Street Road in Feasterville, Pa. In 1992, the retailer opened its fifth Pennsylvania location in King of Prussia, which moved in 1994 to Berwyn, Pa.—now the company's headquarters.

In 1995, 10 years after opening its second store, George's Music entered the Florida music market with a store on International Drive in Orlando. A year later, two more locations opened in the Fern Park area of Orlando and in Jacksonville Beach. These stores were followed by storefronts in Orange Park (Jacksonville) and West Palm Beach.
