Westlake Village, CA (May 22, 2012) – On the evening of Thursday, April 26, 2012, Guitar Center held the grand opening of its new location in Coconut Creek, Florida. The store is located at 4449 Lyons Road, Suite J-106, Coconut Creek, Florida 33073. Guitar Center Coconut Creek is Guitar Center’s 226th retail location.

Guitar Center Coconut Creek’s grand opening introduced customers to a vast selection of products and a dedicated staff with unparalleled musical knowledge and experience. As with all new store openings, Guitar Center hosted a Grand Opening Weekend celebration (April 26-29) featuring exclusive savings, gear giveaways, free events and live performances catered to local musicians.

Guitar Center’s newest Coconut Creek location features showrooms for customers equipped with the latest products for musicians – from guitars, amplifiers, percussion instruments and keyboards to live sound, DJ, lighting and recording equipment. The new store also features Guitar Center Studios, an in-house, state-of-the-art lesson facility, which will create unrivalled opportunities for area musicians of all ages and skill levels. Guitar Center Studios is now the most modern and affordable lessons facility in the area. Guitar Center Coconut Creek also features GC Garage, Guitar Center’s on-site guitar repair service. Musicians could try out the GC Garage for free on Grand Opening night, and with a guitar purchase, customers could also receive a free, 22-point personalized set-up.

As part of Guitar Center’s ongoing initiatives designed to educate and inspire artists nationwide, Guitar Center Coconut Creek will offer unique opportunities for musicians to craft their skills, maintain their instruments and experience many other aspects of the music industry first-hand. Musicians interested in learning about the industry will be able to come to the store to interact with and pick the brains of several industry leaders. Coconut Creek shoppers are also able to enjoy Guitar Center’s new multi-channel “endless aisle,” which includes multiple combinations of product options to conveniently choose from. Not only does the “endless isle” include Coconut Creek inventory, but it also provides easy access to $400 million in new and used inventory located in hundreds of stores and warehouses across the nation. Customers have the ability to combine a myriad of in-store, online and phone options to purchase music equipment from anywhere they may be, allowing for a personalized and convenient shopping experience. Free Recording Made Easy classes are also conducted every Saturday from 10:00 to 11:00 am for anyone who wants to make the exciting journey into recording their music.

In addition to special programs at the new Coconut Creek store, Guitar Center offers nationwide programs designed to spearhead creativity and highlight the nation’s most promising undiscovered talent.
