Schuler Books and Music, originally called Schuler Books, was founded in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 1982, by current owners Bill and Cecile Fehsenfeld. The couple loved books and decided to make it their life’s career. The original store sold only new books and magazines. Today, the company sells new, used, and digital books, as well as used books and music.
The company operates a chain of 3 book and music stores in the state of Michigan. Food and coffee were introduced in 1995. The company also prints books via books on demand through their Espresso Book Machine. This machine can print and bind a book in minutes. This allows clients to obtain books that are currently out of stock or even out of print books.
Schuler Books and Music acquired Nicola’s Bookstore, located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in 2014, but has not changed the name and, at this time, it is unclear if they will.
