I’m afraid it’s true. The Athens, GA branch of Schoolkids Records is closing its doors, according to the Schoolkids Records Closing Sale Facebook page. They’ve already gone into liquidation mode with a sale that will last until the store’s final day, August 20th.
We’ll hopefully have some more info about the closing for you later on. We’re not sure if anything is happening to the other branch or not. Until then, let us remind ourselves and others of the importance of supporting your local independent record stores. Thank you.
