We are a local record store for southeast Minnesota. The basis for this store comes from a local, legendary store, Broadway Records. BR served the area for more than 18 years. Supplying the area with indie everything. BR once dealt solely with indie labels; SST, Dischord, Electric Fetus, Sub Pop and so on. Local legendary Kevin Adams, past owner of BR has been key in launching this new "old school" vinyl shop. When you enter our store the original BR sign hangs high and mighty bringing folks from the region to our shop. We have secured old regulars form "back in the day" and have attracted new buyers too! The store also sells books but record sales out sell books and our primary focus is to expand and captivate the southeast area of Minnesota with a well curated selection of vinyl. We submitted an application last year and did not hear anything, I was advised by our distributor to reapply. We would LOVE to be accepted. Appreciate your time and I hope we could get on the list this year(even though the deadline has passed) I would hope you would consider our last request as proof we are serious about vinyl.
Directions:Located near downtown Rochester. In the newly renovated historic Rochester Armory. Thew store just happen to right next door to the old BR location where the original sign used to hang.
