Since 1919, The Chicago Store has been a locally owned business in Tucson. Today Mark Levkowitz, the grandson of the original owners, keeps the business running with two locations; downtown at 130 at E. Congress St. and on the East side at 5646 E. Speedway Blvd. "It is my passion helping people fulfill their musical desires," said Levkowitz.
