Classic Stereo joins the Bekins family!

At Bekins, we’ve been keeping a secret for many months. Over the past year, we’ve been quietly preparing to open a new Grand Rapids store, focusing exclusively on electronics, audio, video and integration. At last, the time has come for our big reveal:

Bekins is re-launching Classic Stereo! Beloved by West Michiganders throughout the 80’s, 90’s, and 00’s, Classic Stereo has long been known as Grand Rapids’ go-to retailer for awesome audio and video equipment, and for expert advice. Although Classic Stereo fell victim to the recession and closed its doors in 2008, the retailer’s name has lingered.

Today, we’re proud to announce that Classic Stereo is officially joining the Bekins retail family. As Michigan’s #1 Electronics Integrator (according to CEPro), we have the CEDIA-certified expertise and muscle to back the high caliber catalog of A/V equipment Classic Stereo has been known for. Several of the old Classic Stereo’s experts have joined the new Classic Stereo team as Electronics Experts, including John Higgs and Bill Price. The store will be located right next to our Grand Rapids Bekins showroom at 6275 28th Street SE.

Along with the great brands and expert advice Classic Stereo fans expect, our rebooted Classic Stereo will offer virtually limitless integration and installation capabilities. Thanks to recent innovations in the industry, the new Classic Stereo will also be a resource for hi-fi lovers to discover the new, cutting-edge world of hi-resolution audio.

Read our official news release, and take a look at how our construction has progressed over the last several months. The store is slated to officially open its doors at the end of October.
