Well, this is terrible news. After 13 years, independent record store BK Music, Located on Midlothian Turnpike, is closing.
From Style Weekly:
BK Music has been caught in the wave of revitalization — but not in the way Kennedy wanted. The building’s landlord, the Bond Co., informed him a couple of months ago that it was exercising a “redevelopment clause” in the lease that means he’s being kicked out of his space, Kennedy says.
The clause allows the landlord to relocate a business elsewhere in the strip mall, Kennedy says. But the new location he was offered is at the back of the mall, next to a building that’s sat vacant for decades. “I just couldn’t pull the trigger to move back there,” he says. So he terminated his lease.
According to BK Music’s Facebook page, the space will be leased to Starbucks, Chipotle and Sprint stores.
BK Music plans to close on Saturday, Feb. 8. However, the owner is scouting new locations, so it may not be gone just yet.
