Used Kids Records relocating

Local record shoppers are going to get a little less exercise in the near future.

Used Kids Records, which currently operates in a second-floor space at 1980 N. High St., recently announced the store will be relocating to a street-level storefront at 2500 Summit St., just south of Hudson Street, ending a High Street run of more than three decades.

"We're really excited for the new opportunity to re-imagine Used Kids Records while maintaining the vibe and traditions ofour long-time High Street store," Used Kids Records owner Greg Hall said in a press release. "Think inviting street-level storefront with easy access. Think bigger and brighter. Think more new and used records and vintagestereo equipment. Think no more steps. Think a bigger stage for local and national musicians to play in the store. Think tons of free parking spaces!"

The move continues the hotly debated reshaping of the Campus-area neighborhood running along High Street, which has witnessed the closing or relocation of numerous long-running businesses in recent months, including Johnny Go's House O' Music and music venue Bernie's Bagels.

Used Kids has not yet announced a closing date for the High Street shop, and details on the opening of the Summit Street location will be available soon.
