Bleeker Bobs

It's been over a year since we reported that West Village record store Bleecker Bob's was closing, but they're still open. That will change soon though, or so they say. As NYU Local points out, the store posted this on Facebook:

STORE UPDATE:: 3/6/13

looks like the new tenant has signed the lease. we've heard they want to be open by June 1. it will take probably around 2 months to get work permits for the massive remodeling job they'll need to do so we're figuring we should be open until May 2013!!
---get ready for another chain of self serve yogurt/coffee/hot chocolate cafes NYC!!

It was sad in 2012 and it's still sad now. Meanwhile, Sound Fix Records in Brooklyn is also not long for this world.
