ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A long-time Albany music store closes as another store looks to expand.

Ed Jordan's on Westgate Drive closed earlier this month.

Portman's Music Superstore will move into the space next month. Portman's has been in their current building on Westover Boulevard for about six years.

The manager, Mike Boone, says they bought the rest of the inventory from Ed Jordan's and are currently remodeling the location.

"It just was opportunity to be honest with you. We were looking for space and that just presented itself to us. And it's already a music store, people already know it as a music store. It's a good location, a lot of traffic over there," said Boone.

They plan to add a lesson center with seven studios and a repair shop. The new store is expected to be open sometime in July.
