Alamo Music Center Inc

Walk into any Alamo Music Center store and you will be amazed at the immediate attention you will receive. Alamo Music Center was started in 1929 by Alfredo Flores Sr. What started as little more than a way to survive the depression, today is the largest music store in San Antonio. Alamo Music has expanded over the years to fit the needs of the musician. Yes, a lot has changed since Alamo Music Center had its humble beginnings in 1929, on the front porch of an old house in San Antonio, TX. But as much as things have changed from 1929 to present, there is one aspect the company refuses to let go of, this is the devotion to the customer. At Alamo Music Center stores, the company has a firm belief that there should be a strong emphasis on the customer and their needs.

Whether you want an antique piano, or the newest in modern synthesizers, electric guitars and home audio systems, Alamo Music Center has the equipment, employees and service that will make you confident in your decision. Alamo Music Center has the capabilities for doing business World Wide, which allows a customer or business to work with the company no matter where they are. At Alamo Music center, the staff feels a strong devotion to the customer and their company. When walking into Alamo Music Center, do not be surprised if you continually see the same faces. Ten of the Company's employees have been with the company for over fourteen years. You may even see the company's founder, Alfredo Flores Sr., age 95, who still comes into the store regularly to see if things are up to his standards.

Alamo Music Center prides itself on being a family business. Both Alfredo Flores Sr.'s son and daughter stand as the present leaders of the company. Although they are of a different generation than that of Flores Sr., both still firmly believe and implement their father's beliefs on how to make Alamo Music Center a leader in the Music Industry, while keeping the focus on the customer. Since Alamo Music Center's start in 1929, the company has been actively involved in community and music industry projects. Both leaders of Alamo Music Center have taken an active role in the community, sitting on boards which include, The Arts and Cultural Board, The San Antonio Downtown Improvement District Council, National Association of Music Merchants, American Music Conference, University of Texas at San Antonio Fine Arts Advisory Board and many others.
