Pallas Music store will close their doors on Monday.
The family-owned business said it feels like it's a great time to go out on their own terms. On Saturday afternoon people packed the store, rummaging through items, to get all their music needs and many patrons said they would miss the store.
"Now that they're closing, I'm sad they're going" said shopper, Evan Vath.
Pallas Music has been on the bricks for over 30 years. The store has offered music lessons, repairs, and service to any and all instruments. The store is full of a variety of different instruments and music accessories.
"It's a really good music store and it's been here for a long time. It has such a variety of different instruments and different music that you can't find usually," said shopper Nicole Wagner.
Many people saw the announcement of the store closing on the popular Kearney Area Exchange Facebook page.
"This is perfect timing for us, it was meant to be. Like I say, the business has been good for us and the people next door wanted to buy the building," said owner Randy Pallas.
Pallas said they aren't giving up on the music business after the doors close. His wife will continue to offer guitar and harp lessons from the studio at their home. Long-time shoppers of the store said they are just sad to see the place go.
"I was kind of shocked and you lose part of your heritage when a store that you worked in in high-school closes and I had a legacy here of about 45 years" said shopper Gary Straatmann.
The business next door, Fanatics Sports Bar & Grill will take full ownership of the building. All leftover inventory will be donated back to Kearney and surrounding communities.
