just come back from a little excursion to ilkley and wandered into WHARFE VALLEY MUSIC shop on leeds road. they had a couple of mid-range mahalo uke’s for sale with deals on too (free gig bag etc) so worth a visit if you’re in the area and wanted to try out some ukuleles.
i got chatting to the lady who’s husband runs the shop and she said how their last 2 years have been the worst for their business. it made me think how easy it is to buy off the internet without a second thought to how it has massively affected little independent businesses such as this one. it would be such a shame to go past next time and see it had closed for good.
anyhow i personally walked away with a new clip on tuner and some guitar strings…i was seriously tempted by the tenor uke they had for sale!!! maybe next time!
so lets not see another empty shop on the high street…SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL MUSIC SHOP!!
