Our retail space is located in Torrington Connecticut, in the beautiful Litchfield Hills, sometimes also known as "The Northwest Hills", or "The Foothills of The Berkshires"
We are proud to be part of the blossoming of the Arts that is now taking place in Northwest Connecticut.
We occupy a unique space, (for a music store anyway!), that once sold clothing. We are on Main Street, across from the Warner Theatre, and next to The Yankee Peddlar Inn.
This 100+ years old building offers us a mellow and somewhat "retro" players space that we like to think is in keeping with our "mellow."
It is likely to be a retail space that is "not what you were expecting."
We have worked hard at our "mellow", and we hope our store and player space is mellow too.
Please stop in".
