To add a music store to this directory and be featured in its lists of stores, please fill the form below.

The staff will add your entry after validating the accuracy of your submission. As an additional, complimentary free service the staff will add a map to the store during review.

Below the form you can read a style guide for your submission. Please note, the time that will pass between the moment you submit your entry and the moment it becomes live will be directly proportional to how many of the style guide’s suggestions you followed.

Other than that, a perfect submission that follows all of the guide’s rules, is not a requirement.

WXLi’s Music Store Near Me — Style Guide for Stores

For consistency among all records, add correct:

Punctuation: Don’t use periods/full stops in addresses.

Capitalization: In addresses, capitalize everything, except prepositions and words that are three or fewer letters long.

Quoting: For anything that goes in the copy, that is quoted from somewhere else and not the store’s address, try to use real quotation marks (“ and ”) instead of ” (dittos).

Numbers: Don’t spell numbers. Ever.

Dates: In the case that you need to add a date to the copy, use the American format: M/D/Y.

Notes: Write sentences or paragraphs with notes (for instance if the shop is difficult to find, and you have the directions to find it. Example) as normal sentences or paragraphs, i.e., don’t capitalize all words and add a full stop at the end of each sentence. Try to keep the notes in one paragraph, if possible.

Apostrophes: If possible use  (apostrophe) instead of  (single quotation mark).

Hyphenation: Instead of using a – (minus sign) use en dashes (–) or em dashes (—).

Lines of Copy: Add records in this format:

1. Website
2. Address
3. Phone Number / Email
4. Notes (if any)

Special note about lines: When starting a new line use shift+enter (soft return), instead of a regular enter (hard return). This makes each line to be nearer the ones above or below.
