River City Records & Books open in Lincoln Park

Chris Huppert shops for phonograph albums Saturday at the newly opened River City Records & Books in Duluth. Huppert had list of 10 hard-to-find albums he was searching for.

Traffic was brisk at River City Records & Books on Saturday. The new store at 1814 W. Superior St. in Duluth’s Lincoln Park Craft District opened on Friday at 3 p.m.

The collection of LPs on the shelves appeared to number in the range of 2,000. Owner Todd Hanson said he has thousands more that will be making their way out onto the floor in the future. Prices varied, but albums in the $13 to $15 range were labeled “buy two get third free.” Many of the more coveted albums were priced higher. The three-for-two deal extended to other items for sale at the store, such as 45s, CDs, cassettes, books, videocassettes and DVDs.

Regular store hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
