GREENFIELD — Replay has moved from the Rooney building on Main Street to the Pushkin Gallery on the corner of Federal and Main.
“We’ve moved to the sunny side of the street,” said Sarah Cadran, who runs and manages the store for her father.
Owner Allan Cadran said Pushkin owner Edward Wierzbowski had been talking with them about moving to the Pushkin for a while, but they weren’t ready until now.
“We’re going to have a little smaller retail area, but we’ll have a recording studio and lots of space to teach and for rehearsals and jam sessions,” said Cadran. “We’ll go from about 3,800 square feet to 3,000.”
Sarah Cadran said the retail store will be on the main floor of the Pushkin and the other areas will be above.
“We’ll also have a workshop in the basement,” she said.
The Cadrans said Replay will also begin featuring musicians on a regular basis and will have concerts inside the building, as well as outside in the alley on Federal Street.
“Ed has an entertainment license, so we’ll be able to hold shows,” said Cadran.
The two said the first event will be held on June 21 when Replay holds its “Soulstice Show.”
They said they believe Replay will be even more accessible to everyone now.
“We want to become ‘music central,’” said Sarah Cadran. “Home to all musicians in the valley.”
Replay’s retail store is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The rest is currently by appointment, but that will probably change, said Allan Cadran, 54, who started the business several years ago with just four guitars, one drum set, and some compact discs he already had when he first opened.
“I just kept putting every dollar back into the store and buying more and more inventory,” he said. “Our motto is, ‘Recycle Reuse Replay.’”
Cadran said he carries good-quality instruments at low prices, which range from under $50 to more than $1,000.
Most of the instruments are reconditioned, and Replay does some repairs.
