The store is the latest in the area to shut up shop.
It was only a few weeks ago that we were in Soho for Record Store Day, although we’re now faced with more sad developments for vinyl lovers in the area. Following the closure of the beloved BM Soho a few months ago, the latest blow to Central London’s once thriving scene of record shops comes with the news that Music & Video Exchange has shut with immediate effect. Announced yesterday, the development an end to two decades at 95 Berwick Street for the store, which is part of a wider chain of second hand shops throughout London and Birmingham.
Writing on their Facebook page, the owners of the store said: “Due to the imminent construction work on Berwick Street and after 20 years at 95 we have had to shut today for the foreseeable future. We are looking for another shop in the area and hopefully we will be reopening very soon. Until then we would like to thank all our loyal customers and staff for making this such a brilliant shop and we hope to be back very soon! Our record shops in Notting Hill, Greenwich and Birmingham will be taking all the stock from Soho and we hope you will be able to visit us here.”
