Tonearm Vinyl to close their shop
Kelham Island record shop, Tonearm Vinyl have announced that they will be closing their shop in the Kelham Arcade.
They wrote on Facebook.
“Due to the adverse and ever increasing unpredictable effects COVID has had on the recent financial climate coupled with a noticeable decline in passing trade, it has no longer justified the overhead costs of operating a retail premises.
For this reason we have decided to close and mothball our retail shop and operate out of ourAlbyn Works office premises with more focus on online trade, record fairs, pop-ups and markets until such time the current situation improves.
We will continue to operate normal shop opening hours throughout October with our last day of trade on Sunday 25 October.
We would like to thank all our customers who have supported us during the past 7 years but rest assure we will be back with a permanent shop premises once the current terrible situation has improved.
We will be regularly updating our social media with our latest stock arrivals, pop-up shops and market locations, so keep an eye out.”
