Meanwhile, GC has taken out my old store (Music Go Round) plus another
instrument store. Brook Mays took out 3 good local stores. Music and Arts
has siphoned off lessons from several "lesson only" stores, forcing a
out of business. And MARS Music sunk the "flagship" music store in the
that had been in business for 25 years previously.
Mars also took out two of the three best music stores in the Nashville
area, Sam's Music, and Music Man. Corner Music survived, but they're a long
way from me. There are still some high end music stores hin Nashville, but
they're out of my price range. GC was good only because it filled the void
that Mars made when it went belly up. I'd much rather have Sam's and Music
Man back, but that ain't gonna happen, if GC goes under, I've got an extra
hour's driving time through big city traffic to get to a good music store.
Fortunately for me, our local small music store has the picks and strings I
need, so I don't have to make the trip to Nashville too often. I try to
support my local music store as much as I can, I paid an extra forty bucks
for my Bronce bass there, over what GC wanted for it, but that was mostly
offset by the gas and time I saved by not having to drive to Nashville.
However, I can't always afford to do that, and they don't have a big variety
in stock, so I often can't audition the equipment there to decide if I
really want to buy it.
Point being, if GC goes under, it's taking A LOT more with it than a
"Wal Mart" music store.
