Key Leaves has announced a Music Store Stimulus program. The company will credit its dealers for direct sales received at keyleaves.com to help support the many brick-and-mortar stores suffering from COVID-19 closures. This program includes all music stores that are currently part of the Key Leaves dealer network in the United States and overseas.
Upon checkout, website shoppers will be invited to name the music store from which they would normally be making their purchase, and if the store is part of the Key Leaves dealer network, Key Leaves will compensate the dealer the markup amount from standard dealer prices for that product. The program is effective immediately and will continue until the pandemic subsides and most dealers are open again for business.
“This health crisis is causing music shops around the globe to shut doors, refuse repairs and halt lessons,” said Rulon Brown, founder and president of Key Leaves. “If we do all we can now to give aid to local music stores, they will weather this storm and keep serving musicians, schools and communities. I want to give special thanks to Jody Espina of JodyJazz, who started this innovative stimulus program in his business. It makes perfect sense for our industry to support each other this way, and I am proud Key Leaves can emulate Jody’s approach.”
Key Leaves is a family business that is now operating from a quarantined home workshop to comply with Washington State’s “Stay at Home” order.
“We’re proud to make our products in the USA and keep shipping worldwide thanks to help from our immediate family in our home and other team members now working from their homes,” said Brown.
