  • Guitar Center closing stores???

    I heard today that GC is closing 40 of their stores. One of them is here in Des Moines. Anyone else hear anything? I heard it from a friend of mine that runs a little guitar shop and has really struggled since GC opened their store here about 5 years ago.


    EDIT: AFTER LOTS OF SPECULATION ON THIS TREAD AND A FAIR AMOUNT OF GC BASHING, NO ONE HAS PRODUCED ANY EVIDENCE THAT THIS RUMOR IS TRUE.

    SO I SUGGEST THAT WE LET IT DIE BEFORE MORE RUMORS START.

      I was wondering how they were going to make that buyout work. If I was a large vendor of theirs, I'd be worried.

            i hope my store doesn't close. as much as people dog guitar center around here, the one i go to is very helpful most of the time and i always get sick deals at guitar center.

              dammit I hope they don't close mined before I get my next guitar, as I am considering the SG classis.

                  It's hard to argue with their return policy isn't it?

                    I heard that every Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and Target is closing. Is that true?

                        I don't know whether I dislike any retail establishment enough to say that I want to see the people that work there out of a job. Are there some things about GC that we, inevitably, all hate? Definitely, but not that much.

                        Closeout deals? I hope so, but anything like a fire sale is unlikely. They'll probably just ship most of the inventory elsewhere. The deals will probably be on stuff they couldn't give away anyways.

                          The Fairfax store always seemed like at a waste of time, there was never anything there.

                          Still, the Seven Corners store was always a pain in my ass. They were one of the stores that would "unbundle" and sale you the case for an additional cost.

                            I don't wish them out of a job because they work at GC.

                            They are mofos and should be out of a job, period.

                            Shop at the Fairfax store and then tell me I'm wrong.

                            They pissed me off in one visit so much I will never shop there again. I go to a different GC with good people.
