Guitar Center

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.
