Music industry-leading, award-winning retailer Professional Music Technology (PMT) is to open a flagship store unlike any other in central London on Saturday 28th October.
PMT, the UK’s largest musical instrument retail chain, celebrated their 25th year in business in 2016 by opening their 15th location, PMT Nottingham. The opening of the Nottingham branch was then swiftly followed by the relocation and huge expansion of their long-standing Oxford city store. And now, after many years of searching for the right location, London musicians can enjoy the PMT shopping experience at last.
Simon Gilson, joint CEO, said: “We have been waiting for a very long time for suitable premises to become available in the right location. Although PMT London may be smaller than our usual flagship footprint, I can assure our customers, both new and old, they will get to enjoy the full PMT treatment.”
PMT London is housed in a beautiful Grade 2 listed building steeped in history, where a multitude of trades have plied their wares over the centuries. The company has done everything possible to enhance the massive renovation program, which was completed just a few weeks ago, while offering a totally up-to-date retail environment.
The ground floor of PMT London will be an emporium of guitars, amplifiers, effects and accessories with electric, acoustic and bass guitars from the world’s leading brands. The wooden floors and high ceilings make the guitar showroom a great place to try and buy from the largest range available in central London.
The basement of PMT London gives shoppers the most amazing ‘underground’ feel for the hi-tech, keyboard and electronic drum departments, and PMT will be offering an unrivalled selection of studio and production gear for miles around.
The traditional brick-walled space of the basement will also house a full PA and live sound department, the likes of which have never seen before in the city of London. With brands like Bose, RCF, Yamaha, QSC and many more, customers will be able to test and decide what products they require for their venue. Then, customers can either pull up in the store’s official loading bay and take their products with them, or have the gear delivered next-day, UK-wide.
There will also be live touchscreen facilities available around the store, where customers can order from the largest stock of musical instruments in the UK for next day in-store collection or home delivery.
The Grand Opening event will be at PMT London, 35-39 Old Street, Clerkenwell, London, EC1V 9HX, on Saturday 28th October 2017 at 9:30 AM. Those attending the Grand Opening celebrations can expect special guest appearances, exclusive deals, freebies, giveaways, live music and product demonstrations all week.
