Yep, because Atwoods moved here. People stopped buying stereos because they couldn't afford it because they were buying too many shovels! Ain't nobody got time fo dat!

That's what that douche says about every businessthat closes down. Because the Chamber welcomed some random new retailer to town. He has a personal grudge against the Chamber and El Dorado.

Music Mart closed because Eppinettes opened and people blew all their money on cowboy boots, hats and sparkly belts instead of stereos.Plus they started buying those lizards and ferrets.

Amazing how people get so upset about businesses moving here. We are witnessing the results from the efforts of our community officials, yet something negative can still be misconstrued? The problem with social media is that dumbasses, like the Atwoods/Chamber/New businesses hater, can get their dumb ideas out more easily, confusing others.

A parking lot is not always needed when your in a location like the current civic center. There's available parking everywhere.

Music Mart closed because the owner retired. He then sold the building to the guy that owns off road innovations. Music Mart still has a store in little rock.

People coming to events and conferences want ample,convenient, on-site parking. Nearby property owners don't want other guests using teir private parking lot or parking on the street in front of their business. A building permit for this would have been denied if it had been presented to the local zoning & planning board for approval. Due to this negligence the conference center had to purchase a trolley to make up for the lack of parking and will have to pay expenses every day it is used.
sorry

That makes no sense at all. You close your business because you want to retire, yet you still have one open in Little Rock?

Sounds more like he closed it because it wasn't making a significant, if any profit.

It makes sense if the guy was the franchise owner of a single store.

Makes sense if you have a son running Little Rock store that's doing well.
Music Mart was not a franchise. Was based in El Dorado with stores in surrounding towns. Over the years, had branches in Crossett, Magnolia, Ruston, Pine Bluff

just one more flaming example of how Eldorado cannot handle more retail..................the closing of robertsons music store a few years back when Bensbergs moved to town Robertson was gone in less than a year, this was a business that had been here for 30 years........take notes.
