Sheet Music Plus' History
Nicholas Babchuk founded MusicianStore.com in 1996 to sell sheet music and accessories over the internet. The retail online outlet became popular quickly giving rise to Sheet Music Plus in 1997. Focus was on selling sheet music on retail. The company set up an initial warehouse in San Francisco, which later moved to Emeryville, California in 2005. The company had a catalog list of 550,000 titles by 2007. The partnership with Canadian Choral Center in 2012 increased scope for sales and resulted in over one million titles being offered in retail. It opened avenues in Canada, and 10,000+ customers now receive sheet music dispatches free of cost. The company is today considered one of the world’s foremost sheet music retailers with the current warehouse occupying an area of approximately 25,000 square feet and offering music from 1,000+ publishers.
