“It’s remarkable to think that the business my grandparents started is celebrating the milestone of its 90th anniversary," said Reidy's managing director, Paul Nuttall. "The key to the success of Reidy’s Home of Music has always been the quality of personal service extended to its customers and relocating to the new superstore in Nab Lane, Blackburn, marks the beginning of a new musical era for Reidy’s that can only enhance the shopping experience, value for money and level of service to our customers.”
