Hamilton record store has a new location

Main Street Vinyl has moved to a new location not far from where it got its start last year.

The business, which opened at 227 Main Street in April 2017, moved last month to 222 Main Street just across the street and a little closer to the High Main Street Bridge, signing a 3-year lease, according to co-owner Bill Herren, who operates the business with his sons.

The new location is a better option for the business because it offers a better layout and lighting, Herren said.

Main Street Vinyl offers “a little bit of everything,” including albums from rock, soul, blues, country, jazz and reggae artists and groups. Each album generally sells for $5, $10, $15 or $20.

Newly pressed vinyl arrives at the store three or four days a week and consists of actual new albums and reissues of classic albums in an artist's catalog. New arrivals are highlighted via a Facebook post flipping through a bin holding each album.

The business is offering an overstock sales this weekend. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/mainstvinyl.
