Man I used to stockpile vinyl from that place…


Didn’t bode well when the employees took over from the owner….

Also, they decided to continue, post-COVID, what were essentially reduced hours. I don't know if it's a chicken or egg situation but closing at 6PM on weekdays doesn't seem like a profitable retail strategy. When attempting to help promote a couple of local shows, I had to dip out of work to attempt to talk to anyone or drop off flyers. But again, did they do it because they lacked the funds to stay open until 8PM? I can't say. I will say this. . . Joe's Record Paradise has been keeping the same sort of hours so. . . Everyone loves to lament.     
WHAT?

CD cellar in falls church went from closing at 8 to 6 during Covid and stayed that way but honestly they didn’t get much action after 6…..other than me!!!

Record exchange being in downtown silver spring and next to Fillmore ought to have been closing later but who knows…

The closing of Borders and Discover moving to NY were a one-two punch that downtown SS is still suffering from.
