Rockley Music Center, a well-known and well-respected fixture of the Lakewood, Colo., community since 1946, announced it will close its doors after 73 years and formulate a new business.
“The Rockley Family and staff would like to announce our store closing,” the retailer stated on Facebook. “We have been a fixture on West Colfax [Avenue] since 1946. Rockley Music has adapted countless times to serve the evolving needs of the musical community and are changing once again. Upon selling our iconic Lakewood property, we will move into a warehouse location that will better accommodate our new structure. Take advantage of once-in-a-generation pricing as we liquidate to prepare for our eminent move. Piano moving, tuning, storage and limited sales will continue. Orchestral string rental, repair and limited sales will also remain. Support of the work that the Rockley Family Foundation does nationally will expand. We look forward to perpetuating our family’s journey in music service.”
