Nottingham’s Music Exchange is set to close in March

The shop did invaluable social work in the city with homelessness charity Framework.

Sad news - The Music Exchange in Nottingham is set to close its doors for the final time in March. The independent record shop is something of an establishment in the city, and has helped many young people since it first opened. As well as flogging records, the shop is partnered with the Framework Housing Association charity. It is staffed by a team of volunteers, “some with barriers that have meant they have not had the opportunity to work in a retail environment before.” The Music Exchange trains up staff, giving them a relaxed working environment to grow in confidence, and get valuable work experience. In a statement posted on The Music Exchange’s website, shop manager Joey Bell said: “sadly we have made the decision to close The Music Exchange. Its been a tough 12 months for the shop, we have made cuts throughout the year but sadly we have made the decision to close the shop on March 19th, 2016. I would like to thank all of our loyal customers who have made the past 6 years an absolute joy, Our dedicated team of volunteers who’s passion helped to make The Music Exchange such a special place to visit and I’d like to thank all of the bands, artists and labels that make Nottingham one of the most exciting cities in the UK for music….I’m very proud of everything we have achieved and we are all going to miss the shop.” He added that there are plans in motion for a farewell concert, and a closing-down sale.
