Sydney’s Oldest Independent Music Shop Wins National Local Business Awards
This month, Logans Pianos won The Australian Small Business Champion award for specialty retail. This solidifies Logans as Sydney’s oldest independent music shop, and one of the oldest music shops in Australia.
Opened by Charles Logan Sr. in 1920, the store is currently run by the third and fourth Generation of Logans, Geoff & Chris Logan. This award marks a significant milestone for Logans Pianos in their 101st year of operation.
Logans was also recognised by NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) as one of the top 100 music stores in the world in 2020.
Logans is primarily a community store, sometimes having served multiple generations of the same family, in addition to some of Sydney’s most prestigious music institutions, and international artists like Barbra Streisand, Delta Goodrem and Sir Elton John.
“There are families that have been coming to us for three or four generations, and schools who’ve been with us for decades and decades”, says General Manager Chris Logan
“I want to thank all of our staff, customers, and my parents for this monumental achievement. You are what makes Logans what it is – one of the best music shops in the world” added Chris.
