Frontage Road store. The venue will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday with co-host Cricket Wireless, a neighboring store.

“We’ve had such great, hard-working students,” said Gary Fox, owner of Foxter Music. “Parents have been excellent supporting the store.”

Fox continued: “We’ve met so many fantastic people in Pahrump,” he said. “We’re so thankful for all the support the town has given us.”
