About our Stratford Location

Long & McQuade came to Stratford in 2003 after purchasing "The Carpenter Shop". The Carpenter Shop was a locally owned business that had been in our current location since 1972. 

The shop is on 14 Ontario Street with a back walkout entrance onto York Street along the river where you can see the boathouse and our signature swans. We are just minutes walking distance to Stratford's famous Shakespearean Theatre, Tom Patterson Theatre and Avon Theatre. Home to many artists over the years, Stratford is a unique music community.

Our buliding consists of three levels: keyboards and lessons are on the top floor, the main floor has our drums, guitars, recording, band, and print departments, and downstairs we have our PA dept. and rentals.
