Alto Music is set to close one of their Hudson Valley locations on Thursday. LoHud reports while the Airmont store will no longer be in business their other locations continue to thrive.

Alto has had a Rockland county presence for more than 50 years but owner Jon Haber says changing customer behavior is the culprit. He says that nearly half of his business now comes from online sales.

There are crazy deals going on now through Thursday so stop in to check it out. Alto is a great local business that supports the local music scene so swing through their Wappingers Falls, Middletown or Brooklyn locations if you're looking for some gear.
