Grand Opening Recap

Grand Opening Recap

It’s official: Replay Guitar Exchange is open for business!  We held our Grand Opening on Saturday, 8/27, and, by all accounts, it was a great success!  With TS Hermine approaching, we were a bit worried that rain would keep people away, but it held off just long enough for our big day.  We held a pre-opening party for friends & family on Friday night with Damon Fowler Band performing on the Replay Stage. On Saturday morning, there were people waiting outside for us to open.  We cut the ceremonial ribbon and officially opened for business.  John Wesley Band capped off our...

Grand Opening Details

Eleven months ago, I decided to pursue my dream of opening a guitar shop and now the big day is almost here!  Our Grand Opening will be held Saturday, August 27 from 11am – 7pm.  I am incredibly excited (and a little nervous) to see what is going to happen once we unlock the doors.  I really think we have built something unique here in Tampa and we are looking forward to sharing it with you. We will be open on Saturday, and I certainly expect to do some business, but we are thinking of it more like a meet...

What's in a Name?

Juliet once asked Romeo, "What's in a name?  A rose by any other name would smell as sweet."  This is a question I have been pondering lately.  When I first started Replay Music Exchange, I planned to have drum, keyboard, and pro-audio department and focus mainly on used equipment.  Now, as we prepare for our grand opening, I realize that much has changed along the way.  We have become tightly focused on being the best guitar store in Florida and have decided not to offer drums or keyboards.  We still have a great selection of pre-owned and vintage guitars, but we...

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Ahhh, there’s nothing quite like the sound of broken glass in the morning.  As the driver began to unload our long-awaited, brand-new, custom display cases, there was no mistaking the tell-tale tinkling of shattered glass.  Well, add it to The List. After the sheer exhilaration of being in our new store started to wear off, we took stock of the situation and realized:  We have a lot of work to do before we open!  We’ve come a long way toward that goal, but a few setbacks have us thinking about opening the doors in early August rather than late July. ...

Home Sweet Home!

Home Sweet Home!

It’s been a crazy week complete with blood and sweat (no tears yet), but it’s finally done:  We moved into our new store last week!  A few weeks ago, I received the unlikely news that our construction was actually AHEAD of schedule and would be completed a few days before the target date of 6/17. "The Move" quickly went from an abstract concept that would occur at some point in the distant future to a very real event that was coming up fast.  We called the movers to update the schedule and began preparations to move operations from our temporary facility...
