Store History

Bill & Cecile
The husband and wife team of Bill and Cecile Fehsenfeld share a passion for reading and community involvement. These shared interests led them to open the first Schuler Books in Grand Rapids in 1982. Since then, their business has blossomed into Schuler Books & Music, three of the nations largest independent bookstores. Each location now also boasts a large selection of music, DVDs, unique gift items, as well as a full-service, gourmet café. Remaining independent and locally-owned, Bill and Cecile continue connecting writers and readers throughout Michigan.
