Relocated Piano Showroom Welcomes King of Prussia Music Lovers
Following the closure of its old Germantown Avenue location in Philadelphia and opening a new one, Cunningham Piano has also opened a showroom in a prime retail location just across from King of Prussia Mall, writes Gary Puleo for The Times Herald.
The new space has already been welcoming music lovers since opening its doors for the very first time decades ago
“The owner built this building in 1965, not long after the mall was originally built, and at one time they did sell pianos here,” said Rich Galassini, Cunningham Piano’s co-owner.
The 125-year-old company, which in addition to selling its own pianos, sells and restores brands like Steinway and Yamaha, is also keeping a smaller retail operation on Coulter Avenue in Germantown.
The company was founded in 1891 when Patrick Cunningham started building pianos by hand in Philadelphia. Today, the world-famous company is led by Galassini and co-owner Tim Oliver.
“Tim Oliver and I were longtime employees and we saw the potential of what was happening and we wanted it to continue and to expand it, and so we bought the company,” said Galassini.
