Here’s what one business owner had to say about working with ERIE. 

ERIE’s Coverage Strikes the Right Note for Music Man

Sight and Sound Music Center Muncie , IN 10 employees

Sight and Sound Music Center

Jason Struble has come a long way from leading wedding guests in the “chicken dance” and “The Electric Slide.” Now this former disc jockey has a full-service music business called Sight and Sound Music Center in Muncie. The business sells and rents musical instruments, offers lessons, handles lighting and sound service needs, and has a growing presence online.

“It was 1998 when we decided to start doing this new thing called e-commerce,” Jason said. “Now most of our sales are online.”

Jason’s willingness to experiment and evolve has been a big reason for his success.

“It’s no secret independent retailers are facing challenges,” he said. “You have to grow to survive.”

He has counted on his local ERIE agent to hold steady in the perpetually changing world of retail. His trust in his agent is now so strong that he also chooses ERIE to insure his family’s home and cars, and provide him with a quality life insurance policy.

“I want someone by my side who will treat me right,” he said. “That’s why I choose ERIE.”
