It would be great to drop in and try some of the MacKenzie & Marr models. How can I do that?
We're always happy to entertain visitors. Our regular hours are from 9 to 5 Monday to Friday. However we're not always in the warehouse and when we are, we're not set up as a retail store so before you arrive we ask the following:
- Please let us know when you would like to come and which guitar(s) you'd like to try. We need to schedule someone to look after you and because we normally don't set up guitars until they are ordered we want to make sure the models you're interested in trying are available.
- Should you find a guitar that suits you we ask that you come prepared to make a purchase. While it's always fun to show off our guitars we don't have the luxury of high dealer markups that would allow us to cater to musicians who aren't in the immediate market for an instrument.
Occasionally someone who purchased a guitar is close enough to Montreal to pick it up at our loft. Doing so eliminates the shipping cost and gives us a chance to meet and thank a new owner in person so it's something we highly encourage. Again please let us know of your visit in advance and keep in mind we're not open on weekends. It's also a genuine pleasure meeting MacKenzie & Marr owners. We've emailed or spoken to many of you over that last few years but nothing takes the place of personal contact. If you're going to be in Montreal drop us a line. Let's see if we can arrange a meeting time at our loft. With luck, we'll have a supply of the absurdly overpriced espresso pods we got bamboozled into buying but even without coffee, we'd love to say hi.
