A legendary guitar store reopens its doors

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A legendary guitar shop strummed its first chords under new ownership today.

Guitar Emporium held a grand re-opening and ribbon cutting ceremony.

Jimmy Brown, who owned the store for nearly 40 years, handed over the reins to new owner Sherman Buschemeyer.

Buschemeyer stepped up to buy the store when Brown closed the doors in March so he could retire.

Both agreed that the renovations will help maintain the shop's success.

Buschemeyer also re-hired all the store's old employees.
