Shop With Us!

We are doing business a little differently than normal, but we hope you’ll still try to get music from us (or order a gift certificate)!

Can I browse inside the store?

  • Yes – we have a 5 customer max capacity which allows for limited walk-ins.
  • We want you to browse for hours if you can, but please be aware and respectful of those waiting to shop.
  • All shoppers will be REQUIRED to wear a mask or face covering. Please sanitize your hands coming in. We are providing gloves for customers that would like them.
  • The inner door has a sign to show if we are at capacity or not (see below).

 

Good to Go sign

If this side is out and you are shopping alone? COME ON IN! More than 1 shopper? Please check with the cashier to see if we have space for more than one person.

If this side is flipped we do not have space for any shoppers. Unfortunately this means you have to wait OUTSIDE or stop back. The entryway is shared and does not have enough space to wait as current customers will need to exit there.
