MI retailer Wonderland Music, which served the Dearborn, Mich., community for 54 years and counted Stevie Wonder among its repeat clients, will close its doors at the end of October.

According to several news outlets, owners Clarence Wayne and Larry Wayne decided to retire. Clarence Wayne was known as “Crazy Clarence” back in the 1980s, based upon his appearances in local TV commercials at the time.

The store wrote the following in a Craig’s List post:

“WONDERLAND MUSIC GOING OUT OF BUSINESS SALE!!! Everything must be sold. All kinds of musical instruments, sound equipment, lighting, accessories and parts for everything dealing with music. Books, drum heads, school band instruments and hundreds of accessories, many at prices way below cost. Come in and get these great deals while they last. WONDERLAND MUSIC, DEARBORN.”

In addition to serving Wonder, who invited the brothers to his 50th birthday party, Bob Seger was a regular customer and the store also served the Jackson 5, Led Zeppelin and other rock legends.
