Welsch Hearing Aid Company has been providing quality hearing instruments to Sheboygan County and beyond for over 50 years.
If you have lived in Sheboygan all your life, you may remember Clarence Welsch, and his wife Ramona. Clarence owned several local businesses, one of which is still in the family today! Clarence’s first business was, Star Sales, a discount store located on North 8th Street across from Fountain Park. Dick’s Club, a well known sports bar, was located across from Ballhorn’s Funeral Chapels. Clarence’s bought Dick’s Club from his dad in the early ’70’s.
In 1965, after selling hearing aids, direct to consumer, for Sonotone, Clarence founded Welsch Hearing Aid Company. In 1972, Clarence moved his company to the SE corner of 8th & Erie—one of Sheboygan’s “landmarks”. People still walk in there today, asking for Welsch Hearing Aid Company, remembering us from long ago!
Welsch Hearing Aid Company, had a second location in Manitowoc, located over North End Drug, just north of the 8th Street Bridge. Shortly after 9/11, Welsch Hearing Aid Company sold the Manitowoc practice to a former employee.
In 1996, Susan L. Fenrich and her husband, David, purchased Welsch Hearing Aid Company from her parents. Both are Hearing Instrument Specialists licensed by the State of Wisconsin. Under their ownership the office has moved to three locations, and is currently at 2223 S Memorial Place, just East of Wisconsin Vision. This is where they plan to stay. Come and see our big display of amplified phones and tryout the induction hearing loop in their office.
We are on the corner of North 23rd Street & Memorial Drive!
