Editor's note: after 30 years in business in Kent Spin-More Records shut down in March.
The record store closed to make way for a higher-paying tenant, Jimmy John's, which had to move to clear the way for the new Kent courthouse. The sandwich shop has since reopened in the remodeled former record store.
The store was among downtown Kent's longest-running businesses, and its departure is surely a sign of the digital age.
