A German DJ Has created an online database of record stores around the world
Recordshops.org is a user generated Google Maps based database for record stores everywhere. According to creator DJ Marcus Maack, the website was created in order to help keep physical record stores alive.
“I had the idea for this site back in 2009. Took me a few years to realize it. Hopefully it’s not too late… It’s a one-man-project: This site will definitely not win an award for design, but hopefully it will help some record shops to survive a bit longer.” says Maack.
The list is far from complete, but with almost 900 listed in the United States, and 276 in the UK, there are plenty in there already and it’s growing by the day. Users are encouraged to add unlisted vinyl emporiums to the map.
