Premise Details:

This is a MAIL-ORDER operation with a 36 year history, a RETAIL store in a large shopping mall, and a distribution network that involves many local, midwestern, and even record stores all over the world that we sell wholesale to.


There are 47 retail record stores in the Twin Cities. I started 9 of them. Not competitive; there is a lot of COOPERATION between stores (we share events, etc). Online, our website selection of 80,000 records ranks #11 in the USA, last time I checked in late 2017.

more records= more business online= more stores, if you want. There are at least six neighborhoods/suburbs of the Twin Cities that could easily support a new record store in 2019.
