Minneapolis and music goes hand-in-hand. And adding to this notion is a new vinyl record store to the neighborhood.
Located just off of Hiawatha Avenue at 4022 East 46th Street in Minneapolis (the former home of The Pink Closet consignment store), Solid State is set to open on Saturday, December 17. Owned by Phil and Hannah Borreson, the shop will carry new and used records—classic rock, hip-hop, country, jazz, electronic, pop, you name it.
“Solid State is well equipped to be the destination store for life-long collectors, and also be a friendly place for people who want to start collecting and need a helping hand,” said Phil Borreson in a press release.
And if you’re not a vinyl aficionado, no worries. Solid State will also have other music goodies on hand, such as cassettes, vintage band T-shirts, and a selection of DVDs, Blu-rays, and vintage video games. The store will also carry a collection of home goods: leather bags, coasters, throw pillows, and blankets.
And while you gather your gamut of good tunes, Solid State will highlight local musicians with in-store performances and works by a different featured local artist every month, as well as Vinyl 101 training events.
