Spin-More Records Closes After 30 Years Downtown

Store owner hopeful to possibly reopen elsewhere in Kent this summer

The iconic, cluttered walls of , plastered with loud images of bands and their album covers for 30 years, are all but bare today.

The store where you could always count on finding that hard-to-find album or LP has joined a trend so many other record stores have followed in recent years: closed.

Store owner Phil Peachock said today the move is a hard one after selling vinyl, cassettes and CDs in Kent for 30 years.

But Peachock hinted at the possibility of another physical store front for the business, which now largely makes its money selling items online.

"I'll always be doing this, in one way or another," Peachock said.

Congrats on the 30-year run, Phil ... your eclectic shop was a downtown institution!

I will always be grateful for "Careful with that dwarf, hand me the pliers." Thanks for stocking every album ever pressed!

This is not progress. The world does not need another sandwich shop. It adds nothing to the culture.

this shop already exists so i don't think it's prohibiting progress in any way. besides, who's to say what the world needs or doesn't need. there is room for ALL business.
