Our Story

Locally owned and operated, Jake's Good Newport is a family-owned business running out of Newport, Rhode Island. Started in 1958 by Charles Lasky, the Music Box is a legacy that has left it's mark on the city of Newport. An institution created from dedication, a love for music, and a passion for business, the company was turned from one store into three, the business venture handed from a father to his sons. Jake's Good Newport is one of those three businesses. 

Selling Life is Good for over twenty years now, we've made a name for ourselves as one of the largest retailers of Life is Good in the country, and it's a fact we're particularly proud of. Since opening our doors as just an annex off of the Music Box in 1994, we've expanded over the years, now offering more brands and variety than before. It started with Life is Good a few years after opening, and continues to grow today.
