Guitar Center celebrated the opening of its latest retail location – a 9,184-square-foot facility in Hagerstown, Maryland (The Centre at Hagerstown, 17730 Garland Groh Blvd., Hagerstown, MD 21740). The store offers an expansive set of services and gear to serve the music needs of the Hagerstown community. The grand opening took place on Thursday, April 21, 2022. The opening of the Hagerstown store represents part of Guitar Center’s long-term growth strategy, and a continued re-engagement of Guitar Center’s grand opening itinerary, which was put on hold during the height of the pandemic but was resumed in late 2021.
The new Hagerstown store features modern showrooms equipped with the latest products for musicians — from guitars, amplifiers, percussion instruments and keyboards to live sound, DJ, lighting and recording equipment. In-store services include:
- Guitar Center Lessons, a convenient and affordable music education experience for players of all ages and skill levels, offering students the opportunity to learn to play the music they love
- Guitar Center Repairs, an on-site maintenance and repairs service
- Guitar Center Rentals, providing easy rentals of instruments and other gear
- Hands-on DJ Experience, where shoppers can try their hand at modern DJ techniques using the latest gear
Hagerstown shoppers are also able to enjoy Guitar Center’s multi-channel “endless aisle,” which gives customers the ability to combine in-store, online and phone options to purchase music equipment from anywhere.
Wayne Colwell, Executive Vice President of Stores at Guitar Center, stated, “We feel that the new location in Hagerstown is ideally located to serve our overall customer base and complements the already rich atmosphere of musicianship in the area. We’re excited about the opportunity to create an immersive in-store experience that our customers will appreciate as we support them in their musical journey and help them to find their sound.”
