After being open more than a quarter century, a Rapid City business is closing one of its locations.
Haggerty's Music Works is closing its Saint Joseph Street location at the end of February, and consolidating to the West Main store.
Co-owner Tom Haggerty says they will pursue a larger on-line presence after shuttering in February.
With the increase in online shopping, he says it's a smart move but leaving the downtown location is after 27 years is bittersweet. "That's the only hard part about doing this, is we love what's happening in downtown Rapid City. It just doesn't make sense for us anymore to have two retail locations. Retail has changed so we're changing with it."
Haggerty says one thing hasn't changed - the core of their business - supplying the need for instruments in school.
