Sherman Clay Seattle is closing. Share your memories

Sherman Clay, the piano store in Seattle that opened more than 100 years ago, is closing downtown. The owners of Sherman Clay, a chain of piano stores on the West Coast, has decided to exit the piano business and has been closing stores. Seattle is the last one standing, and will close when the last piano exits the building or Sept. 30, whichever comes earlier, according to Tom Austin, the president of Sherman Clay’s retail sales division. Four salespeople will lose their jobs.

As a pianist, I’m still working through my emotions. I’m writing on an opinion notebook entry mourning its closure on Friday, and I would love to hear from readers who have memories of the Sherman Clay store.

We’ll share the best responses here.
