Record Store Opens in Warren as Vinyl Makes a Comeback


In a time of declining music sales, did you know the vinyl music market is actually growing? Village Vinyl, 5972 Chicago Rd., east of Mound, opened in April of 2016 in Warren’s Historical District across the street from Kuhnhenn Brewing Company.

Owner and Warren resident John Lehl says lots of people still buy vinyl. Some are collectors. Others just like the high-quality playback sound of vinyl records. Proof that in a modern era of digital downloads, old-school vinyl can hold its own.

Village Vinyl offers a wide variety of vinyl records, CD’s, cassettes, turntables, t-shirts, and action figures. Village Vinyl opens at noon, seven days a week. For more information, checkout Village Vinyl on Facebook and Instagram, or call (586) 838-4992.
