Phono Select Records in midtown Sacramento has lost its lease and is scheduled to close in February, but owner-manager Dal Basi said today that he's determined to reopen at another site.
Basi said the last day of business at 2312 K St., will be Feb. 10. He calls the closing "temporary" and anticipates a reopening at a new location within a few months.
He noted that "nothing is set in stone," but he's looking at sites within the Sacramento city limits.
In the meantime, Basi said inventory will move into a warehouse space, and he said it's possible that location might operate, even temporarily, as a retail site.
Basi encouraged customers to use gift certificates now. He said the store will honor gift certificates at its new location, but that timetable is up in the air.
Basi said the independent record seller intends to bolster its online operations, and people can keep track of the business via www.phonoselect.com and on various social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.
