From Humble Beginnings

to Present Day

BAND SHOPPE AND PEARISON INC.
COMPANY HISTORY

Band Shoppe was founded by Chuck and Susan Pearison as Pearison Music Service, a small music store in Poseyville, Indiana. Located in a garage next to the Pearison’s home, the company, with a staff of five, sold and repaired musical instruments for schools. 1979 was the start of selling marching uniforms and accessories. These products were sold from a small black and white flyer mailed to three states under the name Band Shoppe.

Since 1970, Band Shoppe has proudly continued a tradition of quality products, prompt delivery, and outstanding customer service to music educators and guard instructors in all 50 states and around the globe. Band Shoppe always strives to bring you the best marching and color guard products.

The 1980s

A shifting of the business at hand.

In 1982, the company’s first full-color Band Shoppe Catalog was printed and mailed to all fifty states. The 72-page catalog featured shoes, color guard uniforms, marching band uniforms, show flags, and parade banners. The music store and instrument repair shop closed in 1985. The company opened a new warehouse in 1985 and a manufacturing plant in 1986 in Cynthiana. Pearison Music Service became Pearison Inc. and Band Shoppe continued to grow.

The 1990s

Soaring to new heights.

The early 1990s were a period of rapid growth. The company bought a building in Cynthiana to expand manufacturing and 10 acres of land just outside town. In September 1996, ground was broken on a new 27,500-square-foot office, warehouse, and manufacturing facility. The company opened Embroidery Direct to sell sports teams, cheer, and corporate apparel. The first e-commerce website launched for Band Shoppe. In 1998, Gerber CAD systems, a Gerber Cutter, and Barudan multi-head embroidery machines were added in major upgrades to manufacturing capabilities.

The 00s

Leading the way into the future

Continued strong growth throughout the decade helped employment grow to 85 people. The company’s Band Shoppe division became a leader in the marching industry. In 2008, the revolutionary Air Blade twirling prop was introduced and became an instant bestseller. Cheer and dance uniforms started to become a growing part of our business. Big software and manufacturing equipment investments were made to serve our customers better.


Pearison Inc. Today

In 2012, the company’s third division, Superior Cheer, was founded with a catalog and website. The athletic team and corporate uniform business Embroidery Direct was renamed Superior Team. Construction was completed in 2014 on a 20,000 square foot manufacturing plant addition at the Cynthiana headquarters. Today, Pearison, Inc’s three divisions, Band Shoppe, Superior Cheer, and Superior Team, continue to serve customers worldwide.
