Rough Trade NYC temporarily shutting down online sales due to COVID-19
All branches of independent record store chain Rough Trade — UK and NYC — have been closed for over a week due to COVID-19 but all have still been doing online orders. The NYC store, however, is temporarily shutting down its online store too:
In response to Coronavirus, we have temporarily shut down all our operations in North America, including orders on our website. We will update again on or before April 6, 2020. Many thanks for your loyalty and patience.
Although our NYC store is closed, please follow us @RoughTradeNYC on Instagram and Twitter, as will be sharing content from our artist community friends, and keeping you all informed of releases that are being postponed due to the virus.
Stay safe. Be well.
In related news, Amazon has “paused” restocking new vinyl and CDs during coronavirus. You can still order new vinyl and CDs for a lot of artists through their bandcamp sites (as many people did on Friday), or through their labels.
