Sound Records is up and running at its new home in George Street, Stroud.
The new shop is larger than the previous iconic shop at the top of the High Street and will allow owner Tom Berry to expand the business, including the record label.
“As well as the usual selection of all things vinyl we now sell CDs and books,” said Tom.
Moving 6,000 LPs from the High Street to George Street was a challenge: “It took us a day to move it all and another two days to put it all in place, so three days in total, and on the hottest three days of the year!” he added.
The shop opened on Wednesday and Tom says the reaction has been “fantastic.”
“We’ve had a steady stream of people buying different stuff, and people really like the CDs and books, and there’s more room to browse our stock.”
The business was established by Tom and Sean Roe and initially had a shop in Gloucester Street. Last year they released Patched In: Sounds of the Stroud Underground on their own record label, also called Sound Records.
