An independent guitar shop selling some of the world’s most revered musical brands is moving to an out town retail park in Beverley.
Selling quality guitars, amplifiers and accessories from world-leading brands including Fender, Taylor, CF Martin, PJD, Rickenbacker, Duesenberg, Eastman, Orange and Boss, the family-run business supports musicians in store, as well as selling globally online.
Now, Guitar Galleries Managing Director Matt Dunn is preparing to move the Beverley store to Flemingate. He says the move will provide additional space to expand its offer to customers over two floors.
Matt, a guitarist who still performs regularly, said: “This is a really exciting time for the business. We are looking to expand and we want to offer more brands.
“To do that, we need a contemporary unit and space to present guitars properly, so people can walk in and play everything they aspire to own.
“We need somewhere that is not only impressive to look at but also functions how we want it to. There is so much more we need to display and, in the new unit, we can present and stock the guitars in the right climate, humidity and environment.
“Over the last three years, Beverley has become considerably busier, especially Flemingate, which offers really good dining experiences and shops. There’s a good mix of independent businesses and high street brands, and it’s easily accessible with great parking.
“We’re moving to a great-looking unit with enough space to offer even more to the community, such as guitar lessons.”
“We only sell products that we would pay to own ourselves and we don’t sell anything of low quality for the sake of hitting a price point.
“We make it as easy as possible for our customers to shop with us and we feel really blessed that people in the local community in Beverley have been so supportive from day one.
“They are incredibly musical and they took to us straight away, so we enjoy a lot of repeat business.
“In an age when you can shop online, people still really enjoy coming into the store and spending their money locally with us.”
Guitar Galleries is moving into a two-storey, 3,100 sq ft unit at Flemingate currently occupied by fashion store VERB.
Graham Tait, Flemingate Centre Manager, said:
“We’re delighted Guitar Galleries has chosen to relocate to Flemingate in order to expand and offer a growing product range to customers. It’s good news that Matt is able to build his business while moving just a stone’s throw from his current store.”
