TACOMA, Wash. —

After 27 years of playing live music for shoppers at the Tacoma Mall Nordstrom store, Juan Perez said goodbye Sunday.

Nordstrom spokeswoman Tara Darrow says the store loved him, but times are changing.

She told The News Tribune (http://bit.ly/WsKBHf) only 30 Nordstrom stores nationwide still provide the ambiance of a live pianist, and the Tacoma mall was the last one in Washington.

Perez is sad to go, but thankful for the job that has helped put several of his 10 children through college. Perez continues to play the piano at other places.

His family and shoppers gathered around the piano for his last Nordstrom performance. The next-to-last song was "Piano Man" and his final song was "How Great Thou Art."
