As we've been noting, Turntable Lab is leaving its 16-year-home on Seventh Street for a new space on 10th Street.
The store has announced that Sunday is the last day in business selling vinyl and stereo equipment here between Avenue A and First Avenue before reopening soon at 84 E. 10th St. between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue.
Here's more on the store's early days via their Instagram account...
120 EAST 7th STREET: Last week in the space, Sunday is the official last day before we reopen on 84 e.10th street... 2 years after launching turntablelab.com in 1999 (when our tagline was "Online Turntablist Goodz"), we started to scout our old NYU stomping grounds for a storefront. the rent was cheap because Alphabet City was still sketchy (you could still buy nickel bags at juice bars) and this space was a couple steps down with low ceilings. Previously it was a Japanese cafe that sold comic books. The picture is from the first day we got the keys, March 2001. We sold off the fixtures to the fridge guys on the Bowery (they totally ripped us off), then sanded the floors and painted the walls ourselves... #TTL7thSteet
