Trade Regrets: William Stonier
William Stonier grew up in a musical family and he played in school bands, nourishing a burgeoning love of print music.
After opening a music retail store in Vancouver called Northwest Music, Stonier discovered it was difficult for a small operation to order direct from many of the large music publishers. As a result, he opened his own distribution company across the border of the United States and soon began one of the largest suppliers of print music in Canada.
William Stonier passed away on December 4th.
