Lo and behold: Your new Philadelphia Record Exchange.
Since June of 1985, the discerning vinyl consumer (and actually, back in the day, cassette heads, too) could wander over on 5th Street, just off South, and know for sure they could find something to geek out on at the Philadelphia Record Exchange. Pretty soon, though, the heads will have to head north: After 28 years, PREX will move to Fishtown, on Frankford Ave. near Marlborough. “It’s a bigger space than [the present PREX] and cheaper too,” said Jacy Webster (whose original partner in the business was Greg Harris; Harris went on become CEO of The Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame). Look for an opening in the new spot as soon as May.
