A Vegas institution is preparing to shutter, leaving local vinyl buyers with one fewer option for adding to their collections.
Record City’s East Charleston location, which opened more than 30 years ago, will close January 28, according to a Facebook post from the store. “Unfortunately, we were unable to reach a happy medium with our new landlord when our lease expired,” the post explained.
On the upside, according to the post, affable longtime manager Joey McDonald—who received a 2018 Best of Vegas award from the Weekly for Best Record Store Convo—will be moving over to Record City’s last remaining Las Vegas location, the familiar purple building at 300 E. Sahara Avenue.
The Charleston store will continue marking down its remaining inventory through its final day, per the Facebook post.
