Just a few months ago, national retailer Best Buy decided to add musical instruments and recording equipment to its already diverse line of products in a few test markets. The move proved so successful that this past weekend they opened their largest outlet to date at the Mall of America in Minneapolis, Minn.—one of the best-known shopping and entertainment destinations in the United States—complete with a section devoted exclusively to musical instruments and recording equipment. Seeing a great opportunity to expand its customer base, Gibson has partnered with the retail giant to include a full line of guitars and products from Gibson Custom, Gibson USA, Gibson Acoustics, and Epiphone in Best Buy locations that sell musical instruments. And the move isn’t limited to just the Minneapolis area—also home to Best Buy’s corporate headquarters. The company is already selling musical instruments and recording equipment, including Gibson guitars and products, in 13 other locations, and plan on outfitting an additional 75-85 stores with the company's "store within a store" concept. They also plan on offering group and individual guitar lessons at each location.
