Maybe not the usual type of local music going-ons we cover on this site, but we figured letting you all know about a new or relocating music instrument/gear store having a grand opening would be an appropriate thing to do, especially for all of you local musicians out there. The Music Shoppe Inc., which was formerly located at 14th and Stevenson Streets in Springfield is holding a grand opening for their new west end location they have moved to at 2940 Constitution Drive. This is out there by Target and Skyzone on the West End. If you don’t know about Skyzone on the west end you need to go there too. The grand opening for the new location is happening in a couple of weeks all day on Saturday, July 13th from 10:00 am to 7:30 pm. Find a facebook event for the grand opening right here. The Music Shoppe is open now (not today), but every day except for Sunday 10am-6pm, and 10am-5pm on Saturdays. There are music lessons at the new location as well.
With Capitol City Music also located out west on Wabash, this puts both major music shops in town out west. It seems as if The Rock Shop’s repair department has also joined forces with The Music Shoppe and will be involved with the new west end location.
