So rather than string people along and them think bad things here’s the news:
Yes, Lunchbox Records will be moving in a few months after 10 years in our current spot to a bigger location. This will not happen until 2016 due to the amount of work we have to do to the building, permits involved, not trying to have a heart attack at Christmas time, etc.
The new space is just half a mile up the road, still on Central Ave at 825 Central Ave in a building that was formerly a funeral home. Don’t worry, we shooed all of the ghosts away. New zip code, same street and same great neighborhood.
• almost 3 times as big!
• bigger stage area means we can have bands play again!
• our own dedicated parking lot not trolled by greedy sharks!
• a bike rack!
• more space for lots more used records!
A before and after shot of some of our exterior progress with more to come:
This has been something we’ve been working on for years, with a few failed attempts along the way. Oddly enough most developers don’t seem to want to work with a local record store, but I’m extremely happy with our current plans and glad everything has worked out the way it has. You may have heard rumors of us moving for a while and that’s because we’ve been trying for a while. Our current building was recently sold but these plans precede that and have nothing to do with it. Our current landlord is not kicking us out and has no immediate plans for the building. This is an expansion, not an eviction.
I am more than aware that our current space is cramped and I have thousands and thousands of used LPs in storage waiting to go out, so this should help rectify the two most common complaints/requests we get at the store.
We look forward to serving your for many more years and hope you can join us.
Again, this is not happening until the beginning of next year, assuming all goes as planned!
