Historic music store to be sold
Individuals who have taken out musical instrument insurance after purchasing equipment from Bruce Millers in Aberdeen may be shocked to hear it is to be sold.
The Scotsman reports how the family-run store has been a feature in the west end of the city’s Union Street since 1900.
However, despite remaining the biggest supplier of instruments in the area, the company has been forced to put the business on the market due to losses in recent years.
A spokesperson said: “The Miller family have supported the business unstintingly and, in so doing, have provided continued employment for the staff in difficult times.”
The representative added that this was no longer feasible and the owners have decided the “best way” to protect jobs is to sell the store.
As well as offering people a place to buy their pianos, guitars and other equipment, the shop features a cafe that serves Italian coffee.
