The popular record store, Amoeba Music, has reopened in its new location in Hollywood after closing down at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new location was announced back in Feb. of 2020 but due to COVID-19 had its opening postponed. Meanwhile its previous location was unable to reopen at all for the same reason. However, on March 30th, Los Angeles County reached the orange tier which allows all retail stores to be opened with modifications.
Amoeba Music is taking its modifications seriously and on their website outlined their detailed safety protocols. Aside from the usual protocols expected such as directional signs and social distancing, patrons who wish to sell their records are no longer able to remain in the store as their products are being assessed unless they’re shopping.
As for the opening day in itself, several festivities were planned. Customers will get a limited edition poster as a gift with purchase created by a local Los Angeles artist.
Amoeba Music is now open Monday through Sunday 11 A.M. through 8 P.M.
