A gem of a record store in Dundas is closing its doors later this year after almost a half-century in business.
Records on Wheels has been a Downtown Dundas favourite for 45 years, located at 34 King Street East since 1979 and serving as a treasure trove for new and used vinyl in a variety of genres.
However, shop owner Mike Clasen recently shared news through social media that Records on Wheels will be permanently closing its storefront, with the final date in business set for May 31st.
“Thanks to everyone for your continued support over the years,” wrote Clasen in a brief Instagram post.
However, it’s not completely the end for Clasen’s career in vinyl sales; he also plans to move to selling records on Facebook and other online platforms beginning this fall, where he’ll surely continue offering new gems and older finds.
Ahead of the official closure in May, Records on Wheels plans to have a large inventory sale and discount club. News on that will be shared in the weeks to come.
