Guitar Center Introduces New Mobile App

The musical instrument retailer launched its new mobile app for musicians, granting them unlimited access to new and used gear from their favorite brands, anytime and anywhere.

Its mobile app is an intuitive retail app that allows consumers to shop on the go, get personalized notifications, explore product reviews while in the store and more, according to a press release.

Some of the features include: Used and vintage gear sections help users easily locate exactly what they’re looking for from the country’s largest selection.  It includes wish lists that allow users to build their dream gear list or scan a product in the store to add it directly.

Consumers will be able to save searches function that allows users to get notified when items arrive that match their specific search criteria. There is a barcode scanner that scans products in the store to bring up reviews and view additional content.

The mobile app also has a store locator that includes upcoming in-store events, workshops, and local inventory.  There is a social feed in the app that allows users to explore what Guitar Center customers are posting on social media and purchase products directly.

“We’re thrilled to be one of the first retailers in the musical instrument space to launch a mobile app and give our customers another convenient way to shop and be connected to the music community,” said Jeff Wisot, Vice President of Marketing and E-Commerce for Guitar Center. “We’re seeing a significant shift to mobile shopping, and we feel it is important to offer our customers these comprehensive tools.” Guitar Center’s free mobile app is available now on the iOS App Store and Android Google Play with all the unique features musicians need to help find their sound.
