Rough Trade are to open a new record store in Nottingham, with more to follow.
The label made the announcement via their Twitter feed, saying: “We’re finally opening a new store in the UK, the first of many…” The store is set to open in Nottingham’s Creative Quarter this autumn, with Rough Trade saying it will be “our finest store yet.”
The first Rough Trade store opened in Ladbroke Grove, London in 1976, soon giving rise to the record label. A new store opened in Shoreditch in 2007, leading to the stores being named Rough Trade East (Ladbroke Grove) and Rough Trade West (Shoreditch.)
The label previously had stores in Covent Garden, Paris, Tokyo and San Francisco. Their only current overseas store is in Brooklyn, New York. The Brooklyn store opened in 2013 in Williamsburg and boasts that it is the biggest music store in New York City.
“We’re going to give it our best to make the city proud,” said Rough Trade of the new Nottingham venture.
