The owners of Cripple Creek Music in Ashland are retiring after 43 years in the business.
According to Garin Bakle, their lease was coming to an end this year and rather then signing another long-term lease, they would prefer to move on to something new.
The shop will stay open for a few more months as they hope to sell off most of the instruments which are being discounted. The partners plan to head to Mexico but said the community has been nothing but supportive and they will miss bringing joy to people through music.
