Music Forte, a downtown Galva music shop since May 2012, has closed. Owner Greg Percifield announced the closing Friday.
"It did not take off the way I hoped that it would," said Percifield, of Galva. "If it were my only sales outlet, I could focus more attention towards it and hopefully get it to work. But as it stands after nine months, I need to focus my time and investments where I've been able to find proven success."
That's on the Internet, where Percifield has operated a successful music business – selling sheet music and other musical accessories – for several years at musicforte.com.
To help liquidate his store, Percifield is selling all items through February at wholesale prices. If interested, call Percifield at (309) 714-8361.
