James Bradley has placed his Sound Fix record store up for sale — on Craigslist — for an asking price of $250,000. He tells the Village Voice he’s just “testing the waters,” noting working two jobs is starting to take a toll. While everyone’s always chattering on and on about the death of retail records, I think 2010 might be a better year than ever to jump at an opportunity like this.
It’ll be our generation’s version of antiquing in about 10 years, and stores like this, that were around long before the mp3 robots swam through your headphone cords and impregnated your brain with Steve Jobs’ cashseed, will probably become icons in a digital landscape.
Basically, what i’m saying is, if you and your group of friends can somehow dig up the money, this might be both a fun and worthwhile investment.
