Continuing the Fight Against COVID-19

Thank you to everyone who continues supporting us through this unprecedented times. This is intended to increase awareness of the changes we have made and new offerings to ensure continued convenience and safety against this stupid thing:
In Store/Sales
In-person sales have resumed since May 22nd as before with regular business hours. Curbside pickup for phone/online orders and contactless payment are now offered. Online sales via Reverb are fulfilled normally with no change in process. We have not yet had to address a max number of customer limit as of this writing.

To initiate a curbside pickup order, please call our shop number during business hours and choose extension 1 for instructions. Text based orders are preferred, as contactless payment links can be provided immediately and speed up the process.

Tech availability is dependent on lessons schedule, with Thursdays being drop off only.
Contactless pickup and payment are offered by request, and preferred.

At the beginning of the local business shutdown, we made significant upgrades to our technological capabilities to continue our lessons program as uninterrupted as possible for those students willing and/or capable to pursue a digital platform for their instruction. And while we have resumed in-person lessons, continuing to utilize these new upgrades to expand our online program is our next goal, independent of pandemic-related factors.

The Average Guitar for Average People Youtube series is an extension of this goal, as it provides an example of content and teaching style, while not undermining the more individually focused program we offer. If you like what you see, and would like to learn more in a more personalized and direct fashion, we encourage you to consider submitting an inquiry here for more information.

About Masks
Your mask protects us from more than just COVID-19.

As of July 1, 2020, the PA Department of Health has mandated mask wearing in public spaces, with few exemptions. Enforcement of order compliance has been placed on businesses, even at the risk of lost customers and revenue.

If you don’t wear a mask, and are capable of doing so, we could get fined, as per the PA Administrative Code of 1929, and the Disease Prevention and Control law of 1955.

With this in mind, we are now requiring masks for all store visits as well as in-person lessons. We will be making them available for purchase shortly. If you are unwilling or unable to wear one, we are happy to shop for you or arrange curbside purchases - detailed above.
