As you may remember, Greenpoint's Permanent Records lost their lease and have to be out of their current Franklin St. locale by the the end of September. The store has found a new location, they're going South (Slope that is). From their Facebook:
New digs will be housed within the swanky spaces of our equally fancy new friends, BrooklynWorks at 159, who selected us to be their only retail establishment. The new space, located at 159 20th St. in ______, -- Hmm, what IS that area called this week? South Slope? Greenwood Heights? Gowanus-lite? -- will offer up a unique and non-traditional retail experience. We hope you'll embrace its unconventionality with us.Greenpoint record buyers will have to hit the G Train to get to Permanent Records now, or maybe they'll just make do with Academy Annex, Captured Tracks, and Record Grouch. However, this is very good news for music lovers in Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, Sunset Park, and South Brooklyn in general (maybe not great news for one of the last hold outs in the same area, Music Matters). We look forward to checking out the new location.
