Learn More About Our Space

In January of 2017, Midwest Musical Imports moved a few blocks down the road to our current location where we doubled the square footage of the store!  Our repair staff now is in a large shop with big windows (they even have an avocado tree growing!) and plenty of space for all of their machinery including room for future expansion.  The sales staff is spread out in a very roomy area with lots of light and windows.  We increased our retail sales floor so you have the space and comfort you need while browsing for your supplies.  And last but not least, we added teaching studios and a recital hall to host all sorts of events!  We are very proud of our new space–stop by when you’re in the area, we’d love to show you around!
