Vinyl record store closes
By Andrew Merrell | 22nd January 2020
A popular music shop which has grown a loyal fan base in the Five Valleys and beyond has closed its doors for the last time.
Santuary Music made the announcement on Facebook and its following 50 per cent off sale to move on its stock saw the business almost cleaned out.
Ash Hunt and Adrian Coubrough, who ran the haven for vinyl record-lovers from the shop on the Nailsworth Mills Estate, posted a message to customers on their social media channel.
"A huge THANK YOU to all of our loyal customers! News of our closing down spread far and wide and our 50 per cent sale has gone so well that we have sold out of ALL new vinyl! What is left of our pre-owned records will be going to Stroud Auctions for their next sale of Vinyl on 1st April," said the Facebook post.
The message followed the initial shock news earlier this month: "We are very sad to announce that after a period of uncertainty due to personal circumstances, Sanctuary Music will be closing down at the end of January.
"We are so grateful for all the fantastic support we've had from everyone in Nailsworth and the local area over the past two years."
Messages from customers greeted the announcement with sadness and words of thanks for the pleasure the shop has brought them.
And then most recently, following the 50 per cent sale: "If anyone is interested in a fantastic retail unit with separate office and storage space in central Nailsworth give us a shout and we can put you in touch with our landlord! Right next to Morrisons carpark with two hrs free parking plus two private parking spaces. Available from March."
