Nyack's Vinyl Lounge to Close Its Doors

Record store will sell off all wares in coming weeks

Nyack's Vinyl Lounge to Close Its Doors

After just over a year of selling records, rare cassettes and CDs, and music memorabilia, Nyack's at 2 North Broadway will be shutting its doors on Monday, August 13.

"Due to lack of local support, a leaky ceiling and Spotify, we are being forced to close our doors for good," wrote founder and owner Matthew DeGroat in an email to customers. "A big special thanks to those of you, few and loyal, who kept us open for 14 months. You know who you are, and we owe you a beer."

The Vinyl Lounge has a handful of sales and events planned before packing up. Beginning Thursday, all $2 LPs will be $1, cassettes will be $1, t-shirts will be $10 and new turntables $99.

"Everything is for sale right on down to the checkout desk and record tables," DeGroat added in his missive.

July 21 will house the shop's V-Lounge Live and Local Musicfest (all ages, $5 suggested donation), and July 28 will be the final show, the Starbeat Music Showcase.
