Abstract

Bowdoin College graduates Chris Brown and Brett Wickard founded the 10-store local music retailer Bull Moose Music, and they manage to stay competitive by being flexible, closely tracking customers' buying preferences, and filling a niche as the cheapest music store in town. The company is responsible for 30 percent of all music sales in the Greater Portland area. Wickard opened the first store in Brunswick while he was still a junior at Bowdoin. A new warehouse facility in Scarborough will include a retail operation, at a time when the music retailing industry is struggling because of CD burning, Web downloads, and other methods of obtaining music. Bull Moose Music has achieved double-digit annual sales and profit growth in every year but one since 1989, when the first no-frills store opened.
