Guitar Center Media Statement regarding Massachusetts stores 599 and 550 (Berklee and Boston):

As part of our ongoing business processes and after careful consideration, two developments are under way regarding Guitar Center’s retail presence in the Boston metro area: the Berklee store (#599) will be closing, effective January 14, and the Boston store (#550, 1255 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02215-3468) will be remodeled to accommodate the business needs of musicians in the area. The disruption for Berklee students and faculty will be minimal, as the Boston store is only a half mile away from the current Berklee store location. 

The Guitar Center Boston store is not only a larger footprint than Berklee, but will also feature an expanded GC Repairs services department (in part to serve the needs of Berklee students), in addition to such store services as GC Pro, Platinum Room, and more. Additionally, Boston shoppers will have access to a 15%-off single-item coupon on a purchase over $199 (maximum discount $500), effective after January 14. Other unique event opportunities for customers and Berklee students at the Boston store will be announced in the future.

Operations at the other Guitar Center locations in the wider Boston metro area (Natick, Danvers, et al) will remain unchanged.
