It's got to be tough competing with Amazon and GC if you're primarily a retailer. What could you do with a local guitar business (or really, a business targeting the interested music-performance hobbyist) that the internet couldn't undercut? I could imagine a music store that was a combination coffee shop and retailer of super-basic stuff. Cafe environment with seating, coffee, maybe muffins or snacks or something. Sell some basic equipment cheap: decent budget / used guitars, mics, combo amps and PAs, computer interfaces and CCKs, budget MIDI keyboards, cables- strings- tuners- straps- capos- stands. Maybe sell oddball used stuff for the interested esoteric. Talk turkey. What would get you (and more importantly your wallet) into a B&M guitar/music performance oriented business?
