Local businesses are the heart of a thriving community and sadly a Bossier City business has announced their final days in business are coming up. I've always admired the spirit of family-owned and small businesses here in Shreveport, I'd gladly drive from North Bossier to go get pizza at Pop N Pizza because I know that’s directly helping my community. One of my favorite hobbies is collecting vinyl records, and back in 2021, I discovered the gift of J&W Music.

J&W Music opened in 2018 and even expanded to a location in Ruston for a few years. In 2021 they moved into the Pierre Bossier Mall and upon my first sight I fell in love upon seeing crates of records and a wall of guitars. Well, the bad news is due to personal illness and other private issues they took to Facebook the other day to announce that sadly they will not be renewing their lease.

They have yet to give a specific date for their final day, but they have said that the store will be liquidating their inventory until that final day. The liquidation comes with new hours for the store, which went into effect just the other day.

J&W Music’s new open hours will be reduced to Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 12 pm to 6 pm. Hopefully, I’ll see you out at J&W to show some love and say goodbye to this local shop. We hope nothing but the best for the people behind J&W, much love.
