Vancouver, British Columbia – After thirty years, Tom Lee Music is moving their flagship Vancouver store from 929 Granville Street to 728 Granville Street on the corner of Granville and Georgia. Located in the heart of downtown, the new store will be across the street from Nordstroms and directly above London Drugs. Tom Lee Music will proudly revitalize a unique space in the Vancouver Centre Building, once home to Vancouver Cinemas.
Tom Lee Music’s new retail store will open in April 2017 and will continue to delight aspiring and professional musicians alike with their legendary full-line selection of top brand name musical instruments and equipment. The company will also relocate their Canadian head office to the Scotia Tower at 650 West Georgia Street.
Graham Blank, Vice President of Tom Lee Music Canada is excited about the move. “We are thrilled to be moving our flagship Vancouver store to a new iconic location in the heart of our city’s vibrant retail and financial district.” He continues, “this new location brings us closer to our local and out of town customers with even more convenient access to transit and abundant parking. Our new store experience will incorporate a modern design and interactive displays to create a sense of discovery and inspiration for our customers.”
Charles Gauthier, President and CEO of the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association, states “Tom Lee Music is a major retail, tourism and employment destination as well as an anchor tenant on the iconic Granville Street. We’re thrilled that Tom Lee Music will be staying downtown as a strong vote of confidence in our vibrant retail environment and Granville Street itself. We look forward to the new store opening this spring.”
In preparation for the move, Tom Lee Music is launching an unprecedented store moving sale starting at 10am on January 20th , with over 5 million dollars worth of new, used and floor model musical instruments and equipment.
