The public relations firm representing the Guitar Center told 13WMAZ Tuesday that the retail store will open a local store in April.
In an e-mail, Jacklyn Arding of Filter Creative Public Relations said the new Macon store will be located in the Eisenhower Crossing Shopping Center at 4685 Presidential Parkway. The statement said the opening is part of a new wave of Guitar Center retail stores that feature in-house lesson and recording spaces, Guitar Center Studios.
"GC Studios allow the brand to offer additional lessons, special programs and expanded opportunities for local musicians," Arding said.
No general manager has been named for the new location, but Jason Caldarera, the Guitar Center District Manager is handling the coordination of the initial opening.
The national retail chain's website lists locations in 44 states, including 4 stores in metro Atlanta.
