HMV is opening a gigantic second-hand record shop in Tokyo which sounds like a little bit of heaven.
HMV’s latest record shop is planted in the Shinjuku ward of Tokyo and will stock over 70,000 second-hand records, mainly purchased overseas, a portion of which will be dedicated to rare and hard to find items.
They also promise a handful of CDs, a cassette corner and a load of special offers to mark the shop’s opening on 1st October. Last year, 660,000 records were pressed in Japan, more than six times the 2010 total. [via Japan Times]
