Tony White, co-owner of Bonners, said, “It was a great turnout and people enjoyed having a look around our new guitar, piano and keyboard store.

“These premises allow us more space to display the fantastic instruments on sale and allow customers to try before they buy, which is really important. “Our new facilities have been well received. They include a guitar and amp testing booth, video suite, an extended guitar workshop and wider ranges across the major brands.”
