Ross Crawford 22nd Feb, 2019

REDDITCH record shop Vintage Trax is celebrating its fourth anniversary after reaping the benefits of the vinyl revival.

The popular business, on Birchfield Road in Headless Cross, will be marking the event this Saturday, February 23, music, giveaways and of course cake.

Owner Ros Sidaway, credits the increasing demand and popularity of records for her shops success.

She said: “It’s not just the local area we serve, we have customers regularly coming from the Birmingham area, Warwickshire, the South West, Wales and London.

“We even have people from around the UK and overseas visiting the John Bonham memorial in Redditch town centre who come up to the shop too.”

Last year alone 4.2 million records were sold in the UK an increase of 1.6 per cent from 2017.

But that figure does not include sales of second hand vinyls sold through record shops, charity stores and online.

Saturday’s celebrations run from 11am to 4.30pm and as always customers will be able to browse and buy quality pre-loved vinyl records, cassettes and CDs.
