Since 1972, Val’s has relied on the power of community relationships to weather the storms of the music industry and continue to carve out its niche in the vibrant community of Oak Park.
Since the store’s re-location in 2006, the Oak Park Arts District has played a central role in providing a support system for Val’s. We are proud and active members of the Oak Park Arts District Business Association and are grateful to our fellow members for making the district a lively destination.
In addition to our immediate neighbors, we also partner with many other individuals, businesses and organizations who share in our mission to cultivate a love of all music.
We are open to all partnership ideas, here are some examples:
- Host an in-store event or fundraiser
- Cross-market a special event
- Donate/trade services
