–April 30th, 2020–

As of May 1st, 2020, all three Gadsden Music locations will be open to the public. We are asking that all customers continue to practice good social distancing by  staying 6-feet apart and reduce physical contact with instruments in our stores. We will take every precaution in sanitizing and cleaning the stores as much as possible. Instrument Returns and Repair Drop-offs within the store will be available starting tomorrow.  The number of customers allowed in the store will be limited based on location. NO PUBLIC RESTROOMS will be open for you to use. Curbside pick-up is still available at all 3 locations.

Use of masks are encourage, but please use them correctly! DO NOT touch your face or adjust your mask. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not recommend wearing gloves to fight coronavirus, but people are wearing them anyway. If you do wear gloves, dispose of the gloves safely and do not reuse the gloves from location-to-location that you visit.

This week Governor Kay Ivey issued a stay-at-home order for non-essential business in the state of Alabama. We believe music is essential to our customers and the hundreds of music students throughout the state. We too are doing our best to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Gadsden Music will remain available to you for customer service and online orders, but our doors will remain closed to the public. Due to the strain on shipping carriers during this time, shipments may be delayed to you. We hope everyone during this time stays healthy and continues to practice to keep your passion of music alive!

As of today at 5PM, our stores are closed to the public, but the business office will remain open for you to make payments, order items for shipment, and ask questions. The online store will remain fully functional for you to purchase items for your students or yourself. You can also make payments online by connecting your website account to the store account (See C2B Request Service).
