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 first day with a terrific show.  We had almost 800 people come through the door over the weekend!  If the store was a bit too crowded for you at the grand opening, now would be a great time to come back for a more relaxed visit.  We are re-stocking every day, so there is always something new to see.

Did you see us on TV?  Fox 13’s Charley Belcher visited the store recently.  I was really excited about being on the show until they told me I had to be here at 6am to get started!  Aside from waking up so early, we all had a great time and I think it went over pretty well.  Replay was featured throughout the morning on Charley’s World.  We also had a nice article in the Tampa Bay Times recently. 

Congratulations to our Grand Opening Giveaway Winners!  We received over a thousand entries and selected 15 lucky winners who received free instruments from Breedlove, Dean, ESP, Fender, Gretsch, Kanaloa, KICS, Marshall, and Taylor.  Don’t be discouraged if you didn’t win this time --We will be doing more giveaways down the road.


Do you appreciate Taylor acoustic guitars?  Would you like to meet some of the craftsmen that build them and see some of their latest work?  The Taylor Guitars Road Show is coming to Replay on Tuesday, 9/27.  Join us for this special after-hours event and learn more about what makes a Taylor special.  Please use this link to RSVP.

Did you spot your dream guitar on a recent visit to the store?  But, perhaps it would strain the budget?  Good news: We now have in-store financing programs available through Synchrony Financial, the leading provider of store credit cards in our industry.  It only takes a few minutes to apply.  If approved, you can bring that guitar home today and spread the payments out over 6 months with no interest!
