Marbecks' Queens Arcade store was saved from closure when Roger Marbeck bought the business back in April this year, and relocated across Queens Arcade to a smaller store. This past weekend he shifted back to the original space, expanding his store. Great news! They say they now have the biggest selection of classical in Australasia.

ADDED: While Marbecks is expanding, My Generation Music in Browns Bay, Auckland (a former Marbecks franchise) is up for sale. The business is listed on TradeMe, for $65,000. 

And in Nelson, Everyman Records is shutting down, after 39 years. The owner is placing the business in voluntary liquidation.

ADDED 21 July: Sunday Star Times writer and Nelson resident Grant Smithies on the closure of Everyman Records; When the music stops.

Shame about Browns Bay. I hope it stays a record store. I LOVE that shop.
