PMT to open flagship store in central London

The UK’s largest musical instrument retail chain, PMT, has announced that it will be opening a new flagship store in central London.

The retailer celebrated its 25th year in business in 2016 by opening its 15th location, PMT Nottingham, which was swiftly followed by the relocation and huge expansion of its long-standing Oxford city store.

Now, after many years of searching for the right location, PMT is bringing its services to London.

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 will be housed in a Grade 2 listed building steeped in history, where a multitude of trades have plied their wares over the centuries. The company says it 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 retailer says this room will house the largest range of guitars available in central London.

The basement of PMT London will give shoppers an ‘underground’ feel for the hi-tech, keyboard and electronic drum departments, and PMT will be offering an 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.
