Guitar Center

By: Zachary Laughin
There has been many rumors about a new store entering Keizer Station. If you like loud sounds and noises, then this is

the place for you.
Entering Keizer Station might be a Guitar Center.We are still not positive if the change is going to be made or not. According to Sheril Beamer it looks like it might just be a for sure change.
We do know that the musical instrument retailer has filed a building permit application. This franchise wants to locate here in our new Keizer Station. They will be located in the former Party City location on 6325 Ulali Drive NE. Since this new franchise wants to locate here in Keizer Station, inside the former Party City, “by the looks it is coming pretty quick, like in a couple months,” said Beamer. We still are not sure if one party is moving locations or just simply expanding there business. By the looks, we think they are expanding their franchise.
The Guitar Center company filed this application on Friday October 14th, 2011. Donahue Schriber, the owner of Keizer
Station and Guitar Center could not immediately verify the retailers plans. Guitar Center is the nations largest musical instrument retail chain so far. As of May 2011, 218 stores are located here in the United States. Soon to be one more here shortly. The main headquarters are in Westlake Village, California. They have to do building permits for a reason. They do it for their customers and employees safety. Even though the building is a few years old they still have to make sure everything is up to date.
“This building was bought from the original owner,” said Beamer. Beamer adds; “They get everything approved then turn it over to the constructors. Then everything is cleaned up then another project is done.” After all the construction to the building is finished all the improvements are made. “Then after all that is finished they come in and make it look more like a instrument store,” said Beamer.
Beamer guesses that all the store hours will be the same. She also guesses they are looking for a store man


ager since the store might be finalized. Jennifer Mayez, the store manager from Beaverton tells us she has about 30 employees working as of now. So our guess for the amount of employees for the new store will be somewhere around there.
May you ask if this is a popular store or not? Beamer says there is one near her neighborhood in Cali. and it looks like a cool store. You can check the website out at to see all the cool things they might have,” said Beamer.
Mayez says no matter how big or small the store they all include the following. They have electric guitars, bass, repair, accessories, drum shop, live room, recording, and a whole lot more. The way Mayez describes these listings, it sounds like a bunch of little shops in one store. Kind of like a mall.
What does the store feel or look like? Its called a snowflake. According to Mayez. Snowflake meaning all the stores have a different look to them. They have there shapes and sizes. Thats not it; alll the locations have a different feel to them. Said Mayez.

    You’re so cool! I don’t suppose I’ve read anything similar to this before. So nice to uncover somebody with some original thoughts on this subject. Really thank you intended for starting this up. This website is something that is needed on the web, someone with a minor originality. Useful job for bringing something not used to the internet!
