About our Bedford Location

The summer of 2007 marked Long & McQuade's entrance into Atlantic Canada when they purchased all nine of the Atlantic Musicstop locations. Musicstop Bedford was originally located in the historic Ten Mile House in Bedford until 2003 when it moved to the current location - just in time for the roof to be literally ripped off by Hurrican Juan in September of that year.

Extensive renovations put the store back together. When L&M took over in 2007 more renovations took place, converting our modest store into the impressive shop it is today. Our location new boasts a comprehensive rental departments, a large retail floor, substantial warehousing and shipping facilities, the region's most renowned guitar repair shop and technician, and one of the country's best-attended L&M Music Lesson Centres.
