FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Fort Wayne’s Guitar Center is closing.
The guitar retailer at 422 W. Coliseum Blvd. will close Jan. 30, according to signage on the building.
A news release from Guitar Center said the closure was due to an upcoming expiration of its lease. The release said Guitar Center was looking at its relocation options.
“With the lease expiring on our existing Fort Wayne location, we are closing that location and taking the opportunity to explore opportunities for a more modern space,” said Wayne Colwell, Guitar Center EVP. “We remain committed to serving the Fort Wayne community with all that Guitar Center has to offer and hope to announce a new store location later in 2021.”
A representative at the store told WANE 15 on Monday that they have not been told of any new locations in Fort Wayne but they’re hoping something comes up.
Guitar Center filed for bankruptcy in November. The 61-year-old musical instrument retailer is the largest in the country.
