So we’ve started moving records into the 900 square foot room in the back of the shop, expanding Hymie’s by a full third. When we’re finished the entire shop will be roomier, easier to navigate and more comfortable, but while we’re moving things around they’re going to be a little disorganized. If you can’t find something feel welcome to ask for help.
Our goal is to have all of the changes done in a couple of weeks, but I don’t have to tell you how heavy records are or how hard it is to get your friends to help you move them (Pizza and beer, anyone?). We’ve put a lot of planning into the finished layout, and especially into making it an easier place to browse. In addition to several new record browsers and some extra places to sit, we’ve adding a second listening station – No more lines on Saturday afternoons!
One of the most exciting things about expanding the record shop is that we’ll have a permanent stage in the back. If you were here on Record Store Day you probably remember that its a space with great sound, and we’re excited about the opportunity to host free live music. We have a few things already planned – More about them soon – And we’ll start scheduling the rest after we finish moving things around.
Thanks in advance to all our regulars for understanding as we work through this last phase of our move.
