Langlois Pianos moving to Poulsbo

blog.langloisOne year shy of its 150th anniversary, piano makers Langlois & Sons is on the move.

The piano sales and service business plans to relocate from its Highway 303 location to Poulsbo this summer. Administrative assistant Michael Patrick Hoyle said the company hasn’t signed a lease yet, but expects to settle in the area of Highway 305 and Bond Road, near Central Market.

“We want to diversify a little bit and stay relevant with the times,” Hoyle said, adding that after 149 years, the family-run business is used to adapting.  “Whenever adversity comes, we’ve opened our arms to that adversity.”

Langlois will move its shop between June and September. It will continue to offer tuning, restoration and moving services in the interim. Langlois has about 5,000 tuning clients. Hoyle said the business is offering steep discounts in the lead up to the move to clear out inventory.
