Michigan’s Lakeshore Drums to Close
The doors will be closing for good at Holland, Michigan percussion shop Lakeshore Drums in a few short weeks, said store owner Fred Johnson. “It’s just been a downhill slide for the last four years or so, of course,” he told MMR, regarding the challenges facing the 12-year-old business. Johnson is the company’s sole employee, having managed the store as well as operated music lessons through the business. He plans on moving to the warmer climate of Florida soon, though, and has hopes to continue with music sales and education if the right opportunities present themselves.
