Record store moves to new downtown location

Crosstown Vinyl will be open for business Friday in its new location on downtown’s east side.

The record store has moved to the Crane Centre, 326 E. 8th St., from 826 W. 11th St. Owner Steve Zastrow said he was forced to move after the owners of the building decided to use the space for offices.

“I was very happy where I was for three years,” Zastrow said. “I really enjoyed the location, but I thought, ‘If you have to move, you might as well find something that’s even better.'”

While the new location is open on Friday, Zastrow still said the space is a work in progress. He plans on having a grand opening in August once he’s completely settled in.

At the new location, Zastrow plans on expanding his inventory from solely retro vinyl, hoping to include new vinyl and band merchandise. He said he expects these new products will bring even more walkup traffic to his store.

Crosstown is now in a much larger space, up to 1,650 square feet from the old location’s 1,000 square feet. Zastrow said when he came across the new space, he instantly knew it was the right fit.

“It’s a radically different atmosphere,” he said. “With the distressed stone in the walls and floors and the rustic looking stacks, it’s a visually cool place to be.”

Hours are 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
