Looks great and well done bud

I may even have to google Klerksdorp some time and make a plan.

It has been great so far meeting the different people and their stories...I had a local business man come in today he wanted Ivan Rebroff...he asked me to spin a specific song on a specific album I had in store, the track was.. Volga so I put it on to play and he shows me he gets goosebumps when he hears this song as it was his late fathers favorite song and also played at his funeral...

Okay so a month has passed and the store has managed to complete its maiden voyage succesfully! Growing interest and debut vinyl afficianados discovering the joy of the hobby and the music and also older flames being rekindled with disgarded collections seeing rotation again...thanks gentleman and ladies long may it continue..Iíll see you on the dark side of the moon..

Not to bring up an old thread but didn't make sense to start a new one.

Just wanted to say made a little road trip this past saturday to get out to Klerksdorp, got to meet @Family_Dog (& get that copy of Jazz at the pawnshop, which I haven't had a chance to listen to yet, am hoping by early July I'll have surfaced enough time to sit & listen to it from start to finish), but also got to meet @Johnnie and check out the record store Club Vinyl, VERY COOL setup, and awesome store.

and again am amazed by the generosity, openness & just plain awesomeness of the members on the this forum.

thanks all!
& wish you guys all the best success for your record store & future endeavors!
This stereo record cannot be played on old tin boxes no matter what they are fitted with. If you are in possession of such equipment please hand it into the nearest police station

Good to have you and Lauren come through to our little town, Nic. Happy there were no passport issues and apologies that Tammy Staffie nearly licked Lauren to death as part of the welcome.

Awesome - there is most certainly a need for bricks and mortar record shops with some character and soul. I for one am missing it...
