FYE Music Store in Philly To Close
For the past decade, brick and mortar record stores have been shuttering up and down the coast because of the growing popularity of digital music (heck even I finally stopped by CDs when I got my IPhone at Christmas), there’s also competition from big-box stores, and the internet stores.
I was surprised when the last occupant of the southwest corner of Broad and Chestnut Street, Tower Records closed, that a FYE record store took it’s place. Now after about a decade of occupying the spot, FYE is closing.
I spoke with a representative there today and the last day for the store to be operating is August 31, 2016. Right now you can save 20% to 50% off merchandise. Also on July 24 at 2PM Moose Blood will be doing an in store concert, meet & greet.
