Riverside’s Audio Shoppe has a long history in Riverside.  In 1984 is  opened on Merrill Avenue. It was founded by Alan Hickman.

Today the Audio Shoppe is at 6760 Central Avenue.  Hickman is a 4th- generation Riversider. In September 2007 he moved to a 9,000 sq. ft. building on Central Avenue.

Alan Hickman started working at SpeakerCraft.  Two years later he opened Audio Shoppe on Merrill Avenue.

For inspiration, Alan credits his dad, who was a professional NHRA drag race team owner.

Hickman’s passion has caught the attention of celebrities looking for after market sound systems.

Audio Shoppe also make custom-sound systems for sandrails, golf carts, boats– even home theater and outdoor audio.
