We are excited to announce the opening of our new dedicated music shop at The Point in Central Milton Keynes.
In July, as you know, we opened a new clothing, accessories, and furniture shop in the former bingo hall downstairs at The Point. Now, thanks to the landlords, further premises have been gifted, for the music shop which has its own separate entrance on the ground floor. You’ll spot our distinctive new signage as you walk by.
We’ve always received a steady stream of donated music in excellent condition, and it’s always popular with our customers. Now it has a home of its own! Off The Record delivers an all-round experience for the music-lovers amongst us. We have specialist vinyl, DVDs and CDs, instruments and memorabilia on offer.
Bryan, who works in our maintenance department has done an amazing job of refurbishing leftover furniture in the space, into tailormade record bins. He even installed a partition wall to provide a separate office space for our online retail team and a collection point for our eBay customers. The team will move in shortly from our Grafton Gate shop.
Thanks to some fabulous volunteers from local businesses we’ve been able to use donated paint and the end result is- well your just have to come and see for yourself!
Volunteer and music fan, Graham (on the right with Manager Kevin), has spent many days categorising, testing, merchandising and curating a collection of classics from your kind donations. Graham has been volunteering in our Grafton Gate store since May and was keen to put his passion for music to good use.
The shop will also stock the best of pre-loved music, band T-shirts, new and used collectables from film and TV, record players, guitars and any instruments that are gifted to us.
You’ll also have the opportunity to try before you buy and listen to your finds in store but thanks to Graham, all records are in good condition and carefully checked for scratches and damage. Our passionate fleet of music loving staff and volunteers will also be happy to swap their recommendations for yours.
Don’t forget to donate your out of favour music too, for a new audience to enjoy.
