With a shift toward digital consumption, it’s not common that we hear of many unique, new record stores opening for business. But with vinyl making a comeback in popularity and increased sales in recent years, hopefully we will see more in the same vein as Sub Pop’s most recent effort. The Seattle-based record label is taking steps to open a store at the Tacoma-Seattle International Airport, which will be open year-round for all your travel music needs. We’d expect the store will stock merchandise from the label’s historic lineup and house other Sub Pop goodies.
The store is set to open in April 2014 and the label is already looking for a manager who has “knowledge of the Sub Pop catalog, Pacific Northwest music, the Seattle music community, and the city of Seattle.”
