1950s music stores on Fulton

Do you remember the Country Boys Market with its wooden floors? Walter Smiths was the place to go for clothes on the Fulton Mall. Penny Candy had great blacklight posters and don't forget Whitie's Pet Store on Blackstone. What vintage retail do you remember growing up in Fresno?

1950s music stores on Fulton

Postby cecilusby » Wed Sep 02, 2015 4:04 pm

Can anyone remember the names of the music stores on Fulton Street near Fresno in the 1950s before the Fulton Mall?

One was larger, had musical instruments and sheet music, and several listening booths and was next door to Roos Brothers,

while the other was across the street next to a five and dime store (Newberry's or Woolworths) and had only one listening booth.

Perhaps you are thinking of Hockett-Cowan Music Store? There was a record store on the mall in the late 60's as I shopped there but I don't remember the name.

Hackett Cowan was the one on the Roos Bros side. Thank you

Sherman Clay 1133 Fulton St., Schilling Music Co. 1239 Fulton, Hockett-Cowan Music Co. 1254 Fulton. That's all I could find for the fifties.
