  • OT: what should be next door to a guitar shop?

    Our local guitar shop proprietor is an enterprising sort of guy. The space next door to his shop is vacant, and he's trying to come up with a way to fill it that will generate at least $2K/month in revenue.

    His current idea is a hat store.

    I recommended a massage parlor.

    What would drive traffic to a guitar shop?

    Hat shop? Don't do it, man.

    I'd suggest some kind of business that caters to hot women who love guitar players.

    "Joe's Salon for Hot Women who Love Guitar Players"
    I guess I kinda lost control, because in the middle of the play I ran up and lit the evil puppet villain on fire. No, I didn't. Just kidding. I just said that to help illustrate one of the human emotions, which is freaking out. Another emotion is greed, as when you kill someone for money, or something like that. Another emotion is generosity, as when you pay someone double what he paid for his stupid puppet.I.K.F.C.E.S.C.Potato SocietySAWG

            Get him to ask his customers which type of shop they were in immediately before entering his shop and where they intend going next. It might reveal a trend. Then again, it might be a load of bollocks.

                A bar, so someone who just bought a guitar could,

                A) celebrate their newly purchased guitar, or
                B) drown their sorrows if they have "buyer's remorse", or
                C) get rip roaring snockered just for the hell of it!

                  How about a pawn shop? Buy your guitar one day, pawn it the next.

                  Camping supplies? You need a guitar around the campfire.

                  I like Knock's idea, though. Get the guy horny so he'll learn to play the guitar to get laid.

                            Circular logic is best because it's circular.

                              Most git shops usually have lesson studios inside. Next door there should be some kind of loungey/coffee house/snack/pizza thing where parents can stop and have some coffee or whatever while the kid gets lessons (most lessons are for kids, ya know). If he doesn't have lessons in his shop, the space next door should be a studio for lessons. One place around here also has a recording studio in it, which is used by the teachers and local artists.
