New record spots in Auckland

Retro City, K Rd

Up on K Rd, there's a new store called Retro City (161 K Rd), which, as you'd expect from the name, is a fab collection of cool old stuff, art deco, vintage etc.

In one corner of the shop is a section dedicated to second hand vinyl. The store is run by Heath Burgoyne, who some will remember form his previous K Rd record spots like Cyberculture. Great to see him making a return to the strip.
