eBay watch: Retrobloke London record store plus flat for sale
Always sad to see any independent record store go, but you have the chance to save one – as long as you have the cash to save Retrobloke.
The shop is in London NW4 and the store is up for sale with all the stock. That’s listed as 30,000 records, CDs, DVDs and videogames over two trading floors, the upper section dedicated to vinyl. You can get the lowdown on the profit and loss, how much the stock tends to sell for etc on the listing. But as a guide, the shop is said to turn over £50k-£60k per year.
Not just the store, this is a freehold up for sale, with a workshop, office, storeroom, two-floor flat and parking also in the deal. Again, you can get all the details of that side of things on the listing.
There’s a genuine reason for sale – the owner has suffered serious illness and wants out, the current tenant can’t afford to buy it, so is selling the shop along with the building.
It looks like a vinyl lover’s dream, judging by the photos. Whether it’s a dream worth £499,000 is another thing altogether. Lots more images on the eBay listing.
