A MUSIC shop in Weston has seen the sales of guitars increase by 25 per cent in the last month.
Emarty Shop in Orchard Street have benefited from a large increase of business recently.
Shop manager, Tom Conibear said: “There has been an increase by about 25 per cent.
“I think it has to do with a lot more people walking down the street.
“Business is not dead and a lot of it is who walks through the door.
“Our sales tend to be people who know they are going to buy a guitar unless they are a musician.
“It is mainly a decision they have pondered over for a few weeks.”
Other products in the shop have also seen a rise in sales alongside guitars in the last month.
“Generally the whole shop seems to be moving again, there seems to be a little bit more spare money.”
The guitars range from £150-£700 and second hand guitars can be bought from around £70.
Tom said: “There is something for everyone and the second hand guitars go quite quickly.”
