Permanent Records lost their lease, moving to new location

New York Real Estate takes another one: Greenpoint, Brooklyn’s 11-year-old independent shop Permanent Records. From their facebook:

There’s no easy way to say it. So here it is:

WE LOST OUR LEASE. On September 30th, Permanent Records will relocate. We’re saddened to leave our Greenpoint home but we’re ready to embrace P-RECS 2.0, P-RECS Mach III, P-RECS REBOOT—-eh, you know what I mean, more on that in a minute.

In 2003, when I told people I was opening a record store, I think most thought I was kookoo nuts. At that time, many of the NY shops were closing or at least struggling to stay open. It’s just something I HAD to do and I’m glad I did. Selling records ended up being a viable business again, who knew?? Yeah, YOU knew, Mike Davis!

For those who don’t know, initially, P-RECS started in a 200 year old house in Northport Village. Not without its share of some new-business-hard-times of its own, after a 3 ½ year foothold, we moved to Greenpoint. This will seem hard for some of you to believe, but back then Greenpoint was slightly uncharted territory. It was 2007 and there wasn’t a whole lot going on over on Franklin Street, it had a sleepy small town quality which was part of the charm. It seemed to be a perfect fit. For the past 7+ years we’ve enjoyed being one of the mainstays (along with so many other great businesses) and believe we’ve had a hand in making Greenpoint the destination it’s become.

Greenpoint’s Permanent Records is a great store and we’ll be sad to see them leave that great space, but glad to know they’re finding a new one. Store owner Marjorie Eisenberg further adds:

We are merely reinventing ourselves. We will still be buying your record collections. We will still be selling you records. We still love talking about music with you. We THANK YOU for all your support over the last 11 years.

More details to come on our exciting new home and new business model. We hope you decide to stay with us and see how we do.

We look forward to seeing your next move, Permanent Recs.
