A sign on the door at 186 First Ave. reads: “Thank you to our loyal customers for your support throughout the years. We stayed in business for the last 30 years and we couldn’t have done it without you.”
Books of sheet music are buy one, get one half-off or buy two, get one free. The same goes for reeds, picks, tuners and other accessories.
