STOCKHOLM (AP) A record store in northern Sweden that was sold to a company controlled by a former Franklin County recorder and has been in business since the 1970s is closing in August.
The store, located in the city of Gothenburg, is the oldest continuously operated record store, according to the Stockholm Public Record Office.
It is a branch of the store that specializes in jazz, classical music and the likes of Motown, the Rolling Stones and others.
The store has a large music section with several dozen CDs and vinyl records, and is open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday from 10:30 a.p.m to 4:30 p.y.
The news was first reported by the local media.
A representative for the company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said it is not known what will happen with the store.
The clerk’s office is not involved in the deal, which was signed in April.
The owner of the record store said he was saddened by the news, but the store is not closing because the record company is closing.
The Franklin County Public Record office said the business is a record shop and that it sells CDs, vinyl records and other music.
The department does not sell newspapers or CDs.
