It currently has 27 stores, including five in New York (White Plains, Carle Place, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Forest Hills), two in New Jersey (in Springfield and Cherry Hill), two in Pennsylvania (in Philadelphia and King of Prussia), one in Connecticut (in New Haven), and one in Virginia (in Richmond).

The Ash family made the announcement on its website, and on Instagra, on Thursday, May 2.

"It is with a heavy heart that we announce that all Sam Ash Music store locations will begin store closing sales," the announcement said. "This unfortunate news also presents a fantastic opportunity for great deals across our premium selection of musical instruments & pro sound equipment. 

"We will also be offering specials on during this time. Thank you for allowing us to serve musicians like you for 100 years."
