May 18th, 2006, was a great day for Chicagoland - it was the day that Guitar Center Algonquin first opened its doors. Since then, we've been proud to deliver great service and expertise to one of the most musically-storied areas in the country. Located near the intersection of Algonquin and Randall, our store is the go-to place for musicians in the northwest suburbs to come and check out the latest gear.
A music store has to be more than just shelves and boxes. When you're selling the greatest feeling on Earth, there's no substitute for passion and knowledge. That's why our associates are music-lovers themselves, with the background they need to talk to you on your level. We're ready to help whether you're a beginner or a pro, with an impressive selection of new and used gear waiting for a home. Our open floor policy means that you can try out any item you're interested in, so drop by in-person to get started or give us a call at 847-658-6981 if you'd like to learn more about what we do.
Like all Guitar Center locations, we also offer comprehensive repair services at our Algonquin store. Our techs are as passionate about your instruments as you are, with the experience needed to keep them performing at their best. Whether you need a quick adjustment or a complete overhaul, we've got the equipment and know-how to take care of it. The repairs department would love to hear from you: in fact, we encourage it! Call or come in for a face-to-face chat about the work that we do. You'll have no doubt that your gear is in good hands when it's time for a repair.
