 Dear Music Mart Customers,

Today we make this announcement with heavy hearts. Music Mart will be closing the store as of December 24th. We will stay open for business through Christmas Eve, and will be having a clearance sale from now until then. All guitars, amps, keyboards, hand percussion, music t-shirts, jewelry & gift items as well as many other items will be discounted until they are gone.

We will be opening a guitar repair shop in a new location in Moline after the new year so we can continue to service our customers with quality repair and custom work. Matt is a certified Master Luthier and has been servicing guitars in the Quad Cities for 30 years. The new shop is smaller and will be focused on repairs instead of retail, but we will still continue to stock strings, parts, picks and accessories as well as a limited selection of used guitars & amps. We will no longer be able to take consignments with our space limitations, but will continue to buy & sell quality used gear.

If you need any repair work done before the end of the year, please bring it in by December 20th. Anything after that date cannot be guaranteed by the 24th when we close our old location. We plan to be set up and ready to open on January 2nd. We will be posting more information on the new shop location & business hours once it's ready to go, and we feel confident that the new location will still be convenient for our customers.

Students taking lessons at the current store will each be contacted by your individual teachers with the details on where your lessons will take place after the new year. We are all working hard to make this transition go smoothly and accommodate everyone.  W
e will still be able to offer Drum & Guitar/Bass lessons at the new shop. Students are all being filled in with the details by their teachers. Piano, band instruments, ukulele, mandolin, classical guitar will still be offered at another location and those students will be filled in by their teachers. Lessons will continue and all students will still be accommodated in one location or another We will still have the same phone number 309-762-9147, so all new lesson inquiries will be directed to the appropriate teachers and the learning and music making will live on for all of us!

The Music Mart has been in business since 1970 serving the Quad Cities music community. It began in Silvis, owned by Gary, then Jerry continued in East Moline and eventually moved to Moline where we acquired the store three years ago. With the changing times and economy, we had to make the difficult decision to change as well, and we hope this new endeavor will prove to be a positive change for everyone involved. We've sincerely appreciated the support from our loyal customers over these last few years, and we plan to continue the tradition of providing the best quality repairs and guitar work you've come to expect from us. We thank you for understanding and we look forward to serving you in the new year!
