UPDATE: PMT Newcastle - Simon Gilson tells us about the new store

PMT has revealed that it is set to open a new store in Newcastle's Dean Street, having taken over the premises previously owned by Sounds Live.

Announced on the company's online blog, the new PMT store will be located in the Dean Street area of Newcastle town centre and is promising a raft of special offers and promotions to celebrate its opening.

Further information on its opening date is due to follow shortly.

Last month we announced that PMT owner, Simon Gilson, will be delivering this year’s keynote address at MIRC 2015.

Speaking to MI Pro, PMT owner Simon Gilson commented: 

"As of yesterday (Friday, March 6th), we bought everything but the company name - websites, stock etc. Everything but the actual company "Sounds Live Newcastle Ltd".

"Mark Taylor - son of Sounds Live's co-founder John - is going to run the store, which is something he’s very excited about. Furthermore, at least four original senior members of Sounds Live staff will be starting from day one, while we will be interviewing others in due course.

"Our aim is to have the shop open as soon as possible. The whole building has to be transformed. We will rip it apart and make sure we utilise every square foot of the premises.

"The North East, without Sounds Live, has no one that sells PA and high-tech gear, so there is a definite need for someone to do what we've done.”

"This latest store is a great addition to our ongoing expansion plans with more to come in the next few months.”
