As national Record Store Day rounds the corner the music retail industry gears up for an increase in demand. We talked to Real Groovy about their plans and what the day means for them.
In a rare happily-ever-after story in retail, beloved music store Real Groovy has found a new home just across from the road from its old digs. The business found out it had to move out of its long-time Queen St haunt in June so the building could be demolished to make way for apartments.
The 25-year-old Queen St branch of Real Groovy has survived its parent company’s liquidation, but Auckland’s booming housing market has finally dislodged it from its premises.
