Co-owners Jessica McQuarter and Jordan Pries are relocating their business to 2106 Kosciuszko (22nd St.), where they’ll have nearly three times the retail space and be able to expand their product offerings. Electric Kitsch first opened at 917 Washington Ave. in downtown Bay City in June 2012. That location closed on March 15 and the tentative reopening date at its new location is Thursday, April 1.
“The building has quite a lot of history,” McQuarter said, noting that it was formerly Joe’s Appliance. In addition to music, Electric Kitsch sells guitar strings, cables, picks and other accessories. At the new location, customers can also expect to find some used guitars and amplifiers.
Pries said he hopes the new location will serve as a gathering place for their customers and fellow music lovers. “We lived above our store downtown prior to this, and this place also has living quarters above the retail space,” McQuarter added. “We really like that old school, like, living-at-your-business thing.”
“We mostly sell new and used vinyl records. Lately, we’ve really gotten into used CDs and cassettes, pretty much all physical music media. Not a lot of stores are selling it anymore, besides record stores,” McQuarter said. “We’ve just been looking for a building that we could purchase that would fit our amenities with living quarters and retail space and size,” said Pries, a guitar technician.
“The music connection is there for all of us,” he said. Bay City Commission approves early start of sidewalk café season
