Guitar Center opened two new stores, a new location in Delray Beach, Fla., and a relocated/re-opened store in Bloomington, Minn. Both of these stores offer an expansive set of services and gear to serve the music needs of their respective communities.
The Delray Beach location is a 13,000-square-foot facility located at 510 Linton Blvd., part of the New Century Commons area. The grand opening took place on April 19.
The Bloomington location, relocated from a previous store in nearby Edina, Minn., a 17,000-square-foot facility located at 7971 Southtown Center. A longtime staple of the area’s music community, the relocated store now offers lessons, rentals and repairs. The grand re-opening took place on April 12.
Both stores feature modern showrooms equipped with the latest products for musicians — from guitars, amplifiers, percussion instruments and keyboards to live sound, DJ, lighting and recording equipment. Musician services include Guitar Center Lessons, an in-house, state-of-the-art music academy for players of all ages and skill levels, GC Repairs, an on-site maintenance and repairs service, GC Rentals, providing easy rentals of instruments and other gear, and Guitar Center Workshops, offering free introductory classes and instruction on guitar, ukulele, and recording. Shoppers are also able to enjoy Guitar Center’s multi-channel “endless aisle,” which gives customers the ability to combine in-store, online and phone options to purchase music equipment from anywhere.
