Brent’s Music Headquarters, which became much more than a music store in Fort Myers during the past 45 years, will be closing for good Dec. 5.  

While Brent’s sold thousands of guitars, keyboards, amplifiers and just about every other type of musical instrument for more than four decades, it also served as a networking hub for Southwest Florida musicians.

Owner Brent Wedler said the store’s closing because of roof damage incurred by Hurricane Ian. The landlord wanted him out to begin replacing the roof and air conditioning units, he said.
