A Family Reunion

In 1959, Richard Lowry saw a newspaper ad about the exciting new field of hearing aid sales. Never one to pass up an adventure, Richard left his stable job and responded to the ad. Shortly thereafter, Lowry Hearing Aid Services was founded. The rest, as they say, is history.


Economy Hearing was founded in 1989 by John Bachman. One thing you have to know about John is that he is a born entrepreneur. Early on, everyone knew he would do big things in the world of business. At the age of 18 he took a tiny 7-11 convenience store that had failed under multiple franchisees and turned it into a top producer. By 20 he had owned and sold two more 7-11 locations. In 1978, John was introduced to the hearing aid industry by Richard Lowry – his future father-in-law. In the following decade, John branched out and expanded the hearing industry in many different ways, but always while working for someone else. In 1989, he combined his knowledge of the hearing industry and his natural entrepreneurship to form Economy Hearing. The rest, as they say again, is history…

Except those histories are now coming full circle.


Lowry Hearing and Economy Hearing are merging together. The next generation of the family is bringing all of Oklahoma under one unified banner – an expanded Economy Hearing.

For our existing patients of both Economy and Lowry, we want you to know that nothing is changing, other than we now have more locations for you to receive service throughout the state. Everything is staying in the family, you included 🙂
