Greenpoint music shop Permanent Records—a fixture on just about every "Where to Shop for Vinyl in New York City" list ever—made headlines earlier this month when, after seven years on Franklin Street, it lost its lease.
Owner Marjorie Eisenberg wasted no time in securing a new storefront, and this week a note went up on Permanent Records' website announcing their move to 150 20th Street in South Slope as part of BrooklynWorks at 159, a coworking building. "People can expect us to have our own hours and our own dedicated space inside," manager Matthew Milligan told Gothamist. "It's a little hard to describe and a bit unconventional, but we're confident people won't be disappointed."
The team plans to open the new shop on October 1st, just 15 days after the Greenpoint location is scheduled to shutter. And, for Franklin Street regulars who don't want to make the trek to South Slope, Permanent Records plans to amp up its mail order business.
