The NOVA Music Center of Clifton has moved to a Manassas storefront.
The business relocated at 12704 Chapel Rd. at the end of May, though they continue to offer private lessons in the town as needed, said storeowner Erich Russekrobbins.
They are working to finish up gathering permits for their new location at 8963 Center St. in Manassas and plan to open soon.
“The owners of the place where we were at wanted to move back into their place,” Russekrobbins said. “They are going to renovate the building and live upstairs and have a different store upstairs.”
Their new location is 2,600 square feet, 200 square feet larger then their previous place. It offers an expanded recording studio, more lesson rooms, an expanded display area and more parking, Russekrobbins said.
The expansion comes on the heels of another benchmark for the store. The National Association of Music Merchants announced that the store was selected as a Top 100 Dealer. The national trade organization for music retailers chooses its winners based on recognizing the most progressive retailers.
“We are very, very honored about that,” Russekrobbins said.
The store will receive its award at a ceremony in Nashville, Tenn. in July.
