FEB. 16 I MCFADYEN MUSIC I OPENING
McFadyen Music will reopen its doors at a new location in Hope Mills, N.C., on March 1. McFadyen’s original store was purchased in 2000 by now-defunct chain Brook Mays Music. Brook Mays went bankrupt and liquidated all of its stores in 2006.
New McFadyen Music owners Joe Chambers and Al Woodruff also own The Musicenter in Greenville, N.C., and have attained the rights to the name McFadyen Music. The store’s grand opening will include giveaways, drawings and a display of rare instruments, including signature guitars.
“The company will be a smaller, tighter-knit company,” Woodruff said. “At this point, this being our second location, there is more attention to very competitive pricing, great product selection and our customer service.”
McFadyen Music will be a full-line dealership and sell the Fender, Ibanez, Yamaha, Tama and JBL brands. The store will also feature a repair shop, music lessons and church sound system installation services.
While Woodruff would not say to what capacity, he indicated that the McFadyen family will be a part of the new store. MI
