Vinyl Fever spins last record and closes up shop | Business
Tampa, FL -- After nearly 30 years, a nationally known local record store is closing its doors.
Vinyl Fever went out with a bang. Owner Lee Wolfson spun his favorite rare records and several bands performed live. Even though it was announced several months ago, customers were still shocked and saddened by the store's closing.
"First thing that went through my mind...when I realised it was true, I cried. I'll have to make a few more commutes to this store before it's gone forever," said Victoria Joyal.
Everything in the store was up for sale, including the famous instruments and posters that had "Not for Sale" signs on them for years.
A bad economy and a changing industry are some of the reasons why Vinyl Fever closed its doors.
