Hey everybody! You may have read that Bop Street is closing its retail store on Market Street by June 30th I will be transitioning to wholesaling LP’s & 45’s from my home to individuals & dealers. As a memento , Max & I have been putting together bags of 5 LPs for $15.00 (+ tax.) Each bag contains a record I’ve pulled from my own collection of album cover art. Please contact us at 206-297-2232 if you’d like to purchase one, and we will get it to you. Phone hours are noon – 4 pm Tuesday through Sunday. Or leave a message. For me this has been the best job ever. I appreciate all of you who have shopped at Bop Street over the many years and locations. Sincere thanks to all of you for your many years of support
