Harrogate record shop marks 30th anniversary with vinyl revival

Posted on in Business News

P&C Music – Harrogate's oldest independent record shop – is celebrating its 30th anniversary, having become a mecca for vinyl record fans in a wide variety of genres from the classic era of rock music to today’s new releases.

Renowned for embracing the annual Record Store Day when queues of vinyl fans form in the wee small hours, P&C Music’s Peter Robinson is proud to have reached this major milestone.

“May 21st was the date we took over the shop as a going concern,” says Peter, “making it 30 years in total since its foundation.

And it is rewarding its customers’ support with a selection of offers.

"For one month from today, we're having a 20% discount sale on all our pre-owned stock ,” says Peter, “except those already in our sale crates.”

"We're sure customers will find some gems, so get along to Devonshire Place to snap up some bargains."

At one point as the online world exploded after the turn of the Millennium, some people questioned whether vinyl would still even exist by now. But vinyl sales have just enjoyed their highest total in 30 years.

Last month saw more than 260 shops in the UK take part in Record Store Day, an annual event first launched in 2007 to "celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store.”

The annual celebration of indie record store culture delivers a £9.7m boost to record shops, helping secure the future of one of the key pillars of grassroots music culture.

Despite the constant challenges of an ever-changing music industry, P&C Music is still going strong.
