Reidy's Home of Music was awarded the High Street Retailer award at the Lancashire Telegraph Business awards last Friday.
The shop went through a massive transformation this past Septmeber, relocating from its old Penny Street site to a new 6,500 square-foot superstore in the heart of Blackburn's university campus and learning zone.
Reidy's, which was founded in 1922 by the current managing director Paul Nurrall's grandfather Ed Reidy, boasts a gigantic wall of guitars, a state-of-the-art Yamaha keyboard stage for in-store performances and a special Fender room for electric guitars, along with sheet music, orchestral drums and a dedicated educational department.
Paul Nuttal commented: "It is fantastic to win this award, especially with the new shop opening. It was nice to have the team with us because without them, we could not have got there. We are hoping to grow even more next year. We are up about 28 per cent from last year and hopefully that will just keep growing."
