    Richmond Music Center closed their doors a few days ago.

    Bummer.

    They'd been in business about 30 years (maybe more). They were the first store I visited when I moved to Richmond, 2 decades ago. Bought a lot of gear from them when I lived Southside.

    I don't know exactly why they folded, but a GC opened a few years ago, a mile or so down the street. I'm sure that hurt.

    Anyway, down goes another locally owned music store. Employees, instructors, and students, all scrambling for work and a new location.

    Kind of depressing.
