APRIL 23 I JORDAN KITT’S MUSIC I CLOSING
Jordan Kitt’s Liquidates Flagship Store, Prepares to Move
Piano retail chain Jordan Kitt’s Music is currently liquidating inventory from its College Park, Md., headquarters and plans to close the store. From April 16–18, the company hosted a by-appointment-only pre-sale for preferred customers, dubbed the “Largest Piano Store Closing in History.”
According to P.J. Ottenritter, the company’s vice president of sales and marketing, Kitt’s plans to relocate the facility but hasn’t determined the new location yet. He said recent construction at the University of Maryland has made the area around the store less accessible.
“With all the changes to College Park in the past few years and with stores now covering area counties once only served by College Park, we’re better suited with a more efficient facility with easier distribution capability and a more suitable [administration] office for our current staffing needs,” Ottenritter said.
He added that store count “may not change.”
