Record Exchange New Location

After the Record Exchange was damaged by a building fire last August, owner Sam Lock, shown, has been getting the shop's new location at 410 N. Market St. ready to open in early February. Lock has glued nearly 1,000 records to the floor and covered them with epoxy.

When the Record Exchange was damaged during a fire in August, owner Sam Lock said, he was ready to work at Home Depot.

“I was like,‘You got to pay the mortgage in six days,’’' he said. “'What are you going to do?'”
