PreAtomic Records , at 211 SW Second Street , is proud of its new location, which opened in June 2022. Josh Lucas, the owner, opened his first location within 2019 and is happy with this more visible spot that feels bright, airy, and fresh. An avid music lover, Josh started collecting vinyl records about ten years ago. He realized he had too many and started a business selling albums, tapes, plus CDs online and at farmer’s markets. He still loves going out and finding records, especially the hard-to-find collectibles to offer in the shop.
Josh says every record store is different because each one curates inventory in its own style. He likes jazz and folk, but with the fluctuating stock he carries, you’ll find a wide range to suit your taste. PreAtomic Information offers personal listening stations and a record cleaner. You may even be around for one of the live music events – ask, plus he’ll let you know when the next one comes up. On summer Fridays, head to Beer Place , where Josh offers trivia games and spins his favorite tunes.
